Julia on craftsy.com explains the benefits and delights of sewing with wool, as well as specialized sewing and care tips. Since wool retains heat and keeps heat out, it is an excellent fabric to use to keep cool in summer and warm in winter. Wool is absorbent and can absorb up to 1/3 of its weight in moisture. It's hypoallergenic, as well as wrinkle resistant, and when cared for properly it should last a very long time. We love the garments she uses to illustrate her suggestions...everything from elegant sheath dresses to cozy plaid jackets.
