Wool flannel is classic for attire – pants, skirts, jackets, and more. It's also gorgeous (and so very easy) used for winter wear: quickly whip up a scarf (you don't have to finish the edges much beyond cutting with pinking shears if you don't mind a bit of fraying, or you can use a nice whipstitch with a matching or contrasting yarn) and some mittens or a great set of couple's mittens, make some booties for baby or slippers for the rest of the family (use the luxurious wool fleece as the innersole and reuse old slipper soles or knit new ones out of a sturdy hemp yarn or make them out of a sturdy fabric or a felted wool, a piece of leather you picked up at the thrift store, or something similar)... I'm sure the wool flannel isn't created for this, but I can't imagine a better wool for longjohns simply because I love the way it feels against my skin; similarly, it would be splendid for a light but wonderfully cozy cardigan.
This may be (more?) proof that I'm crazy, but couldn't you just imagine a throw blanket out of this fabric? I want to make one that's two-layer, with big patchwork blocks with some sort of applique in alternating blocks (I haven't figured out just what sort yet, but I'm thinking I'd use our wool wovens to stay in theme). Maybe I've just seen too much country-style decorating lately, but this wouldn't be country per se, just a knock off on the idea. And it would be so incredibly comfortable ... imagine sitting there, wrapped in that beautiful blanket, reading a book and enjoying the firelight!
At 15.2 ounces per linear yard, this fabric is 9.4 ounces per square yard. If you're used to wools that itch and bother, or think you're allergic to wool, request a sample of this marvelous fabric -- it may surprise you! (Many people react to the chemicals used in raising the sheep and processing the fibers, rather than to the wool itself.) Made in the US from Organic Australian Merino Wool.
