Fabric Mart has a fab fabric sale on now. They are offering 50% of their huge selection of Shetland wools. That means that they shake out to $9 US per yard. If you are in need of a few winter coats like I am, you may want to follow my lead and pick up a few good wools.
From amongst all the delectable hues, I narrowed it down to these choices (Watermelon Rose, Heathered Rust, Goldenrod, Concord Blue, Spring Green and Heathered Palm Leaf in order from top to bottom). Now, I'm pretty sure these guys are going to be scratchy little rotters, but I couldn't resist the rainbow of beautiful saturated colours.
While there, I also picked up a super cool teal and black plaid wool gabardine. This little beauty will become a nifty circle skirt.
So, enlighten me folks, has anyone else bought some of the Shetland wool? Is it a picky, pokey nightmare? Will I rue the day that I snatched up all this fabric yardage? Or will I marvel at my bargain hunting skills while I stroke my new soft and cosy acquisitions?
