Repurposed Wool Scarf"I began this life as a sweater knit from wool, but moths found me tasty and ate until they were full.
I have been reclaimed, upcycled, and hand-felted, fusing my fibers together, I have been melted.
Cut, stitched, and handmade with care, I am perfect to keep or to share.
Look at me now, a warm scarf to drape around your neck, recycled fashion in full effect!"
This scarf is patchwork felted wool in purple hues, some patterned and some solid. My design is a series of 11 rectangles that are repeated a few times. Each rectangle is machine sewn together. Measures approximately 3" wide by 72" long. It is backed in purple plaid flannel. Wools include cashmere, mohair, and lambswool.
Care instructions – hand washed and air hang to dry.

From my smoke-free home.
Thank you for looking.
Hi, I am Theresa. I love to create art. It started with not wanting to trash a wool sweater that had some holes. I saw a display in a fancy department store with reclaimed wool mittens and scarves, I said to myself, "I can make those." I felted my moth hole sweater and made my first felt flower. I now repurposed wool sweaters into Christmas stockings, fingerless gloves, flowers, and boot cuffs. I repurpose game pieces into magnets, pins, and ornaments. Neckties into brooches.
I love working with alcohol ink and my newest creations are ornaments, and wall/shelf art.
I live just north of Chicago, IL with my husband, and children.
