Wovember

The month of November is drawing to a close, however, it is not over yet and not too late to draw your attention to WOVEMBER - started by Kate Davies and Felicity Ford who are calling on everyone to:

Wear 100% Wool this Wovember and help celebrate that REAL WOOL comes from REAL SHEEP.


There is a petition on their website calling for the word WOOL to mean wool - real wool, from real sheep - and for new standards in labelling garments.  This is a link to the petition - if you care, please sign!

They also have a Hall of Shame to expose mis-description of garment composition by well known retailers and a competition for a photo that shows 100% wool, see the Gallery.

Congratulations to Kate and Felicity for taking the intiative, let's support them!

I got given a whole bunch of acrylic garments by Mom's friend who lost a great deal of weight. Expensive items, apparently, but I can't understand why anyone would want to wear them - they feel like steel wool scrubbers.
