The beginning of fall or autumn means it is time to upgrade your winter wardrobe with warm and cozy sweaters. For me, it will be a repurposed wool sweater, as recycled wool projects is one way to help the planet. It might make you wonder what is recycled wool and what is recycled wool fabric?
One way of helping the planet, is through recycling and reusing, and sustainable wool sweaters, made with recycled yarn, is a great way.
From an environmental viewpoint, recycled wool has a much smaller carbon footprint, than virgin wool. Wool might not be a vegan fabric, but it is naturally produced, and as such is much better for the environment than petroleum derived synthetics.
So why do we need to repurpose a wool sweater and what is recycled wool fabric?
