Happy Halloween!

Sorry, but no recycled wool posts today. I've got a date with a little monster truck driver and a bucket o' candy! Happy Halloween everyone!!! My husband turned Jack's wagon into a monster truck for him, and make him a monster truck-o-lantern too. Good Daddy!

Jack's a bit of a ham, eh?

Wood Pond Design

As Christmas is approaching are you looking for that perfect little something for that perfect little someone? These recycled wool plush baby rattles are as adorable as they are eco friendly! Did you know that wool is dust mite resistant, unlike everything else that stuffed animals are made out of in the stores? You can find these cuties hopping around in Wood Pond Design's Etsy shop.

Hershey is my baby

So.... what do you have on your door? Are you looking for something unique, beautiful, and recycled? My friend Nata-Leigh was, and found this fabulous Etsy shop, Hershey is my baby! She carries a fun variety of great woolly goodies. If you are looking for a good read, her blog is great too!

Though I almost never talk about things that are not made from recycled wool, I just had to show you all her pet beds. It is such a clever idea, and if I needed a pet bed I would be buying one one these for sure!

It's usually me that seeks out recycled wool artisans to feature, but this one came to me... looking for a sweater. The irony?... it was the same sweater that was in my giveaway last month! Anyhow, I peeked at her bags, and they are too cute for me not to feature! If you are looking for the perfect evening bag, or one of a kind purse, check out Franciebags Artfire studio, and website.

Play At Life Fiber Arts

Lately i've really had the urge to learn how to knit, and it's shops like Play At Life Fiber Art's Etsy shop that trigger it! This beautiful yarn is reclaimed from unloved sweaters, or "frogged", and then dyed to colors that are as fun to look at as they are to say, like "Lime Pickle" & "Whispering Conch".

Maureen Cracknell Handmade

I featured this shop earlier in the year, with Maureen's darling houses, but now she has dolls that are just as adorable & unique! Only some parts of some of her goodies are recycled wool, but what the heck... they're too cute not to feature! These whimsical wonders can be found in Maureen Cracknell Handmade Etsy shop, and on her new blog!

Aren't these sweaters gorgeous?! They are all made from recycled cashmere, so they are as soft, warm, and luxurious, as they are beautiful. You can find all of these sweaters & more at Movie Boy Production's Etsy shop.
