    I am just learning to sew, so I may have used it without knowing. I am working my way through the cheaper fabrics until I can sew without wasting large quantities. I am somewhat sensitive to certain combinations of wool but will certainly try it out. A overcoat, perhaps…

  2. Chris says:

    Wool is heavy to sew with but wonderful. The seams finish so cleanly, no raveling. I love it for applique, but I’m not very good at it.

  3. Evelyn says:

    I just bought a piece of light-weight drapable wool earlier today with plans to make an unlined jacket in time for autumn. While I haven’t sewn with wool before, I’m looking forward to the experience. Years ago I bought some nice navy blue Pendleton wool for a cape. I was so apprehensive about making a mistake that I hired a professional to make it for me. It’s so yummy — so soft and never ever itchy. Not sure what I would make if I were to win this beautiful piece. I’m certain something perfect would come to mind after seeing it in person.

  4. Ivette says:

    It is difficult to find wool fabric and when I do, it’s not of good quality. Because it is expensive I’m afraid I’ll ruin it

  5. Margaret C. says:

    In my past life almost everything I sewed was made of wool. I love the sheer variety in the colors and patterns of the fabric.
    Recently, I scored a over 4 yards of Viyella. This was the fabric I coveted. It is 50% cotton and 50% wool. It is no longer made because it caused too many fires while in production. It is 36 inches wide. A little tricky in finding an apparel pattern!

  6. Denise Zeman says:

    I love sewing with wool. The drape and weight make beautiful garments. I also prefer knitting and crocheting with wool based yarns. I would love to find time and fabric to make a wool blanket.

  7. Lisa McCaskey says:

    I have not sewn with wool but would make a wrap skirt, like I wore in high school. I recall stopping at a Pendleton Outlet in Wisconsin every summer so my mom could get clothes for the new school year (she was a teacher.) The Pendleton items lasted forever and always looked good.

  8. Jo Ann Rust says:

    Afraid of screw up the pattern. Too many questions with care of the material. Would love to try to make something with it someday.

  9. Judy Knowles says:

    Wool is one of my favorite fabrics to work with. It’s very durable and pliable and easy to cut, sew and shape, and the results are extremely rewarding. The Pendleton wool being offered today has such a beautiful pattern that I would make a wallhanging out of it and put it on display.

  10. Chris says:

    I have sewn with wool in the past but since I now live in a smaller city, it is very difficult to find 100% wool. I have a mittten pattern I love but finding the fabric up here was impossible, no selection.

  11. Dorothy U says:

    the only time I sewed with wool was when I was a teenager in high school class, I would love to sew with wool once again. this Piece would make an interesting pillow

  12. Marion Phillips says:

    I love pendelton wool

  13. Nancy says:

    I recently saw a pattern for a beautiful cream wool jacket. My local fabric shop does not carry it, so I have not yet tried sewing with wool. I can see this beautiful fabric as a bed quilt or other large object – it is just too gorgeous to cut up into small pieces.

  14. ShawnAnne Dixon says:

    I was gifted a couple of yards of vintage wool from my grandmother when she passed. After it sat in my stash for several years I came across a photo of a wool cape and I immediately pictured “Grandma’s Wool.” I created a pattern from the picture and added a silk lining. I had never worked with wool before and found it quite pleasing especially considering that even after all those years it still carried the scent of my Grandmothers home. Each time I look at and wear the cape I created I think of my Grandma. My Great Grandmother was full blood Snohomish Indian and my roots tell me to make a winter covering with a flannel lining with the wool that you are giving as a prize. I am guessing this is the forum to enter the contest. If not, I apologize. Either way every time I see wool I think of my Grandma.

  15. It says above that I am a winner in the giveaway for the previous day but I did not receive an email. I sent in an email using the contact form and also a message via your Facebook page but still haven’t heard from anyone. How can I get in touch with you please to claim my prize?

  16. Marie Nelson says:

    I have made a couple of skirts with wool. I really like that wool breaths. If I were to win this fabric, I think I would mix it with suede or leather to make a vest!

  17. Michelle says:

    So sad, but I haven’t ever sewn with wool before, though I do have an amazing wool challis dress lined up for this fall! I think what mostly stops me is that the local stores don’t carry much for wools and wool fabric tends to be more expensive and more of a texture thing than a eye-catching pattern thing, so it’s hard to buy it online. I am loving the look of that wool though, it is amazing! I think it would make a wonderfully cozy fall vest!
