First day of the Wool Lover Blog Hop

Here it is! Join us on a fun trip as we hop around today's list of blogs to find out how these creative ladies used wool on their projects. At different times of my life I enjoyed crochet, knitting, creating things with wool felt. Lately, I relax as I applique with wool and then embroider it...

As I mentioned in an essay published earlier this year (click here to read it), wool comes from sheep, llamas, camels, goats, and other animal coats. Just as varied as its sources are the infinite number of items we can create with it. You can wear it, turn it into blankets, rugs, bags, necklaces, stuffed animals, pincushions...

If you have not had a chance to work with it yet, you will probably want to give it a try after this week!

Our 4 sponsors for this blog hop are:


Wool Color Chart as a guide for the wonderful wool thread Aurifil makes, plus a  thread pack, courtesy of Aurifil...
