Undyed wool loops


Years ago, a dear friend shared a huge 5 pound bag of pure wool pot holder loops with me.. Little did I know at the time just how valuable and hard to find these would become. I dyed the loops with natural colors, and made potholders for gifts and for sale.

Since then, I've occasionally purchased a pound or two from Harrisville, though they were expensive and couldn't be ordered online. After a lot of searching and some disappointments, I was happy to finally find someone with a stash of un-dyed wool loops. These are 100% wool, with no nylon "seam". I had to splurge!

I love how eagerly the wool soaks up natural colors.

To me, the loops were worth the price...:)

Wow, these are really colorful and I just wanna interpret the same style for getting my sweatshirt from my mom. Since my childhood, my mom uses to stitch these things for me and my brother. I also use to refer topcvwritersuk.com blogs for more design ideas and color
