I have reached the point where I need to start considering buying recycled wool in bulk. I was invited to buy a part of share a few months ago. There is a recycling plant near NYC that offers 10 bale shipments of wool. A bale is 100 pounds. PHEW! We are a family of 5 living in 800 square feet: we don’t have the space for that much wool! Plus, my washing machine is tiny, and to clean/felt/lanolize all of it would require many trips to the laundromat. I don’t have that kind of time. We’ll see what I end up doing.
In sewing news, I’m working on a bunch of wool diaper covers, wool sleep sacks, and wool leg warmers. Stay tuned for some ultra-cuteness!!!
