About

Rescuing wool....one sweater at a time!

I love the process of making something by hand - beginning with design and finishing with the small details that make each handmade item unique. I love the time and effort involved in creating future heirlooms.

It's so exciting to give new life to recycled materials. Wool is so deliciously tactile and warm and is a dream to work with. It also happens to be my favorite medium to work with right now. What most see as a moth-eaten, dated 80's sweater I see as the perfect fabric to make small advent calendar stockings. I adore saturated, bright colors and search endlessly for the perfect wool striped sweater or scarf to work into my items. I create things that make me happy!

My rescued wool wreaths were featured in the Romantic Homes Holiday Edition, November 2011 and on various blogs in several languages. Since that time, I've expanded my shop to include various ornaments, garlands and advent calendars - all made with rescued wool.

My eco-friendly items are made of repurposed/recycled wool sweaters and scarves. All of the rescued wool I use in my projects is made of wool fibers (ranging from 90% up to 100% wool) including: lambswool, merino, shetland and sometimes with some alpaca and angora included. Each piece is meticulously cleaned before use. I full (felt) each piece in extrememly hot water and soap and make sure it is rinsed twice. Every piece of wool I use in my shop is washed in fragrance free detergent and free of any holes, stains, odors or any other yucky stuff! Only wool that meets my extremely high standards is used.

I accept credit cards, debit cards, Etsy gift cards and Paypal.
