Too warm for a wool sweater? I think not.
It’s May in the mountains, the weather is warming up, many spring flowers have come and gone, trees have put out their shockingly green leaves, and yet… I am still inappropriately obsessed with wool sweaters.
Since our production for fall happens all through the summer, we will be working with sweaters even in the hot months, so I guess it’s natural that I would be consumed by sweaters a little bit… but I’m talking about something deeper. For me, thinking about sweaters doesn’t stop when I leave work: I’m currently knitting one sweater, I just got some new yarn in the mail, and I have three sweater knitting projects in the wings that might get done for fall if I knit diligently through the summer.
A good wool sweater is like a puppy! (You have to take care of it.)
I feel a pang of regret when I think about packing away my sweaters for the summer, though I know it’s all worth it when next fall comes and I can greet them like old friends. Speaking of which, heres a link to a great little article, How to Clean and Care for a Wool Sweater, from Real Simple with tips to help give your sweaters a proper send off until next fall.
