for a while now, i’ve wanted to scavenge local thrift stores and create an upcycled throw from unwanted wool sweaters. to be totally honest, i teeter along the line of skeeved out and eco-mindful. thankfully chicagowillie offers incredible step-by-step instructions, including washing with extra hot water! (adios germs, sorry mother earth – is this net zero?) but really, why does a wool knit elicit so much anxiety when i certainly don’t mind generic hotel sheets nor used t-shirts (is cotton less odor absorbent?) hmmm, one for the shrink. anyway follow these 4 blog posts + make one of your own!
thanks for the direction chicago willie
