I can never resist a dingy old anything at all if it's made of wool.
I have been hoarding plaid scarves and with life support - a good soak, some fresh air and a press - this is what they can become.
Wool is the best fibre in the world,
do you worst and it still performs better than some crappy old bit of man-made rubbish.
I usually run 6 - 11 miles and my very hi-tech cold weather running gear is a second hand £4 navy blue lambswool mans jumper and a pair of Shetland Fair Isle gloves, nothing better.
One day people will come around to the obvious but until then I am happy to rescue abandoned wool.
In my etsy shop now, shortly to be joined by siblings.
