Embedded font only displaying under www

EE,
I have embedded fonts in a website:
www.fallwreaths.com

In IE and FireFox the embedded fonts only show up if the browser is in www.fallwreaths.com 

When the browser is http://fallwreaths.com the embedded fonts do not load.

Is there something I should do to get the fonts to load under both instances?

Thank you,
dresdena1

The Firefox Error Console shows this cross-site access error.  It is because you are using absolute paths and file names.  Since your fonts appear to be in the main directory, you might be able to use just the file name like 'breeserif-regular-webfont.woff' and get it to load in both circumstances.

Dave Baldwin,
Thanks for the quick response!
The css file in a different directory (publish) than the rest of the pages.
The cart (ShopSite) is setup that way. The CSS is generated in a separate directory.
That's why I use absolute paths.
Do you have any thoughts on a workaround?

Redirect any non-www request to the www version of the page so that is always using http://www.fallwreaths.com/ .
