Notes: 

Another scarf made from recycled yarn.  This time a men's wool sweater caught my interest.  On the loom it was looking a little plain and drab.  It came off the loom with a really fun waffle-y like texture that I hoped would stay thru the wet finishing.  Wet finishing took out pretty much all the crimp... except for a very small subtle hint of it.   The finished scarf looks alot like I had hoped it would, so I say this was a successful experiment.  I've decided that all the scarves made this way are going to be a gamble!

Okay, so I have to laugh when

Okay, so I have to laugh when I saw the Hong Kong wool label laying on your recycled scarf. Can this now be re-labeled "Made in USA?" ;-)
