Two weeks ago I emailed my recycled textile supplier, and told him I was ready for two more bales of sweaters. We drove to the next town over, deposited money into his bank account and we were in business, as simple as that. I still can't believe what a nice guy he is! A good business man! His workers bundle up 75 pounds bales, as that is the limit for shipping with Greyhound, and then he personally delivers them to Greyhound for me. Greyhound actually has a very good service, the bales were here in a few days.
Mark carefully cutting the metal strapping
we just love how much the bale expands with each strap cut off
new felted wool rug, using some of the new sweaters
17 sweaters felted, cut and wove into this huge and glorious rug!
I love it!
