Recycling jumpers for wool


I have continued  taking the huge pile of jumpers my dad in law has given me apart. But it's not for the faint hearted or those with a short attention span. Especially for me as the majority of jumpers I am being donated are machine made so the unravelling is all the more complex. I do think its worth it though for the end product as well as the satisfaction that all that work gave a good result as well as the fact that its a great way to recycle. As I now live in the forth driest country in the world being conscious of my water consumption in this case means unravelling rather than felting. I really loved the colour of this wool above and have already decided to make a crochet cardigan with it for the summer :)
