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 yellow and orange hues, some patterned and some solid. My design is a series of 10 rectangles that are repeated a few times. Each rectangle is machine sewn together. Measures approximately 3" wide by 60" long. It is backed in an oatmeal-colored 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 and statement collars.
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.
