To wool or not to wool, that is the question.
Well, it seems that many of you are 1) allergic to wool, 2) too warm to wear wool, 3) are ardent vegans and don't want any animal products, or 4) just don't like wool. I am happy to hear this! It is far easier to find other fibers and the range of colors is usually greater in cottons and man made fibers.
It is hard to assure you, my customers, of what exactly the content of every fabric is. Because I use recycled garments and sometimes the tags are removed or unreadable. I keep all the scraps, and it may be months between using the first and the final pieces of a garment. But, that is why I wash and dry all of my garments after completeing them and before selling them. This assures me that WHATEVER the fabric content it will make it through the 'gentle' cycle in both the washer and dryer.
