It’s that time of year – finally chilly and wintry here in Boston, otherwise known as WOOL WEATHER! I get a little too excited at this time of year, because I get to wear all sorts of warm garments and accessories, and do my best impression of an Icelandic woman and layer woolens on top of beautiful woolens.
That said, wool itself is not the only material I wear or use in making my pieces – I use lots of super soft cashmere, silk, and sturdy linen, sometimes combined with warm and cozy wool, and sometimes combined with each other for those with low wool tolerance. Luckily there are a lot of you out there who share my love for these materials, and you can enjoy this season, too!
As most of you reading this know, Boston Wool Works is a one-woman show (me!), and I’ve been working hard to expand my offerings and my reach this year as this becomes my full time occupation. If you would like to support me in this venture (which I really appreciate!) and adorn yourselves and your loved ones in beautiful materials, there are a few ways you can do so.
First, you can visit my shop (currently on Etsy and also available through the “shop” tab on this site). There you’ll find the largest selection of handwoven and handsewn scarves and shawls, towels and coasters, snazzy shoulder bags, and yarn (for knitting, crochet, weaving, etc.), mostly made from re/upcycled materials.
If you’d rather see my work in person, the following brick-and-mortar shops will have my work through the holiday season, including bags, scarves, hats, and neck warmers – please also support their businesses as they have been generous enough to share my work with their customers!
- Dahlia Gallery, 524 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA (SoWa District)
- Assemble Northampton, Thorne’s Marketplace, Northampton, MA
- Fuller Craft Museum Holiday Shop, Brockton, MA
Thank you so much for your support! I can’t wait to share with you what I’m cooking up for 2018!
