Pure Wool Offcuts
$0.00 inc. GST
Throughout the year we have pure wool off cuts available for collection.
We shape our knitwear as it comes off the knitting machines as much as possible because it not only is great business practice, it reduces the need for off cuts and landfill. After a piece is knitted, it is steam pressed (to shrink it naturally) and then a pattern is laid over it and the piece is cut to shape for sewing. The off cuts are available and can be used for many varied purposes - pure wool has a myriad of positive attributes and the off cuts are suitable for:
- stuffing soft toys where allergies might be an issue, such as premature infants;
- stuffing foot stools; cushions or other homewares as an alternative to acrylics;
- sewing into smaller garments such as mittens or dolls clothes;
- educational sewing projects;
Our preference goes to any school; any daycare; any childcare and any craft group that can make use of our wool for art purposes. However, any person is welcome to apply for a bag of pure wool off cuts. Please select free local pick up unless you have phone us in advance and are prepared to pay the cost price for shipping to your location.
We do keep a list of interested local art centres; childcare centres; daycares and schools that are interested in donations. You may always phone us to add yourselves to this list and we will phone you if we have excess wool that has not been claimed. Our phone number is 5331 5533.
