Look at the properties of wool....it is hard wearing and absorbs moisture....it does not burn over a flame but smoulders instead...it is lightweight and versatile...Wool does not wrinkle easily....it is resistant to dirt and wear and tear.
I have to confess I am a wool addict.....every city and town and cove I visit...I quickly scan to see if there is a "Wool Department" I have trunks of it and bags of it... in so many colors....but I know there are more colors out there and I have to have them. Wool colors are glorious :-).. I inherited my mothers wool (Myrtle Stacey) which I am sure had some of my Grandmothers (Minnie Hiscock) wool in it. I love to create with it......I have two quilts they knit tucked away not to be used...(two dogs here)..Look at all the things you can make with wool.
Below are some of my wool creations
Starting with one strand and you create a beautiful crochet baby blanket which speaks warmth and comfort
A piece of burlap, a design, wool yarn of many colors and a hook and you create a piece of art. Carpets, coats, suites.....us hookers love to recycle those coats and suits into mats.....oh I sigh (big breath) for all those wonderful mats that were created by our grand mothers and replaced by the store bought....
I hear the wool calling.......have 100 skeins to ball up!..and I know my friend Anne is busy at it....I'm inspired again!
Nows wheres my hubby...I need a hand...
