It's so gray, windy, and rainy today that it's definitely a good day to wear some wool or stay under your wool blanket. My most worn and most loved wool item is the fuschia wool scarf I got in 1983 when I took the train into Boston with my friend Maria Garcia (where is she now?) and went shopping at Filene's (out of business). The highlight was trying on some Girbaud jeans (do people still wear these?). What's your favorite wool thing?

Did you know that Britain and the Campaign for Wool has deemed October 11-17 "Wool Week"? They want to educate people on the advantages of wearing, wrapping, knitting, decorating, and living with wool in order to support sheep farms, endangered breeds of sheep, and the production of wool.
