Wool Jersey and Fabric districts
I didn’t see anyting for the felting wool jersey here, but a couple of years ago, I found some fabulous wool jersey on sale, did not like the color, and felted it in the washing machine. Then I dyed it, cut two pieces for a long a-line skirt, and simply sewed the two side seams. No zippers, no buttons, and the wool gives to hug your body. I love it-in winter, it’s like wearing a thin blanket, it’s flattering, and if I could I’d make 5 more! I have had a hard time finding wool jersey since, for the same price. I also make my own felt fabric, but it doesn’t “give” or drape like wool jersey.
Speaking of finding fabric, I am going to NYC on June 30th, and would LOVE to hit some cool fabric stores. I’d like to bargain-hunt a little…I don’t have THAT much cash to spend. Threads had an article on finding fabric in NYC several years ago, but businesses change, so…any locals with suggestions?
