Are your nights getting chilly too?

Before we resort to turning the heat on we add warm layers, layers of clothing and a wool layer to top our family’s beds.

Since 1988 I have been making rich, warm and super functional blankets by recycling used wool cashmere, alpaca, mohair, and angora sweaters.  Trimming them with the finest (often recycled) silk velvet or satin.  

It feels satisfying and quite delicious to create useful ‘art’ with materials that are destined for the landfill.  Making a pile of what most people think in garbage into something that is beautiful, warming, and useful really rocks my soul.  

Do you wanna really rock your soul?

When I found my process as a college student it felt just right, creating with used materials felt permissible. The process of turning discarded materials into something sought-after holds meaning richer than just making with new materials for the sake of creating something.

Now, many years later, I see that this work has allowed me to walk the path of solution finder, problem solver, trash recycler.  This process has allowed me to feel comfortable as a human on planet earth where ecological balance is so needed. Helps me feel like I am doing my part.

Are you a crafty and environmentally minded person who might want to join me on this path to global health and freedom?  Share with a friend who you know will love knowing there is positive change happening here and then be sure to hop on my email list if you haven't already.
