a blog about creativity, design, and wool appliqué

The Search for Wool

It's the question I get asked over and over: where can I get wool for my appliqué ? Many people ask me about finding quality supplies for their hand-stitching projects. To help answer those questions, I am starting this blog series, In Search of Supplies. Today I’m covering the search for wool to use in your next applique project, with a focus on new wool. (Look for a post about vintage wool in the future.) In the meantime, I want to take you through the main kinds of wool that I use in my work, what to look for, and where to find it. Mill-dyed wool There are two kinds of dyed wool you can find, hand-dyed and mill-dyed. Mill-dyed just means that the factory dyes the fabric after it is woven.
