So, the winter wool good season is over, and I'm contemplating how to keep selling over the warmer months. I figure I can either build up stock and prepare for the fall and winter, or I can diversify a bit. I plan on doing both. My next venture will be upcycled/recycled sweaters felted and turned into picnic blankets. I'm thinking of backing them with upcycled/repurposed jeans or other sturdy material. A double bonus of this is that I'm expecting my local thrifstores to be a great source of wool sweaters this time of year. I am excited about this new adventure. I love trying new things and growing as an artist. I'll post pictures of the process and finished product as I go. First step, a trip to the Goodwill!
