Last week we started to receive a whole lot of wool. I couldn't help but order more wool this year than we've had in the past. I love wool. I grew up in a fairly temperate climate, with really only two seasons--foggy and not foggy, with a annual average temperature range of about 40 degrees. While that was lovely and all, I have lived in Oregon for over 20 years and I love experiencing the changes in seasons. I love fall and I love wool. I've been dreaming about all the things I want to make with what we've got in the store right now. The classic brown and cream herringbone will hopefully turn into a simple short, straight skirt. The pencil skirt Meredith featured last week would be great with many of these beauties--the pink herringbone with green stripes is so darn cute and colorful for winter!
Our wool selection is quite varied right now. We have a number of pieces that are a fine weight, with a beautiful drape, including the subtle grey/brown plaids on the fair right above and the far left in the top picture. These would make such fine Negronis. I'm thinking the navy tweed second from the left, for the Rooibos dress, also a Colette design. It's a lighter weight, but will certainly keep me cozy warm in the winter. So many ideas, now I still need to figure out how to squeeze a few more hours into a day, right?
We have a few great wools in the sale bin too, so be sure to check those out too! And these just arrived yesterday morning....
