{eco}: Wellie Warmer DIY & London-Wul

Whew!  Sorry about my absence, sometimes things just get just a little bit out of hand.  I began last week by introducing my mother, Sylvie, and by announcing that the week would be dedicated to her amazing finds.  Well, that obviously didn't fly, so I'll be picking up where I left off today - we've got great reclaimed finds from Montreal and an amazing green destination to bring you this Thursday (instead of the usual Friday, as I'll be participating in Victoria's {from SFgirlbybay}Blog it Forward Mash-up!). 

Today, I'm bringing you beautiful, organic wool and a super cool DIY to complement it.  I asked my mom about organic wool a little while back, and next thing I knew she'd run amok on the internet and I was rich with her finds.  Here is one of my favourites.  As for the DIY, this is something I came across on Threadbanger.  I've been wanting some wellie warmers for ages, so I was really excited to find this DIY to go with my much pined after pair of Hunter Boots.

London-Wul is an organic, Canadian wool producer that my mom came across.  Located in New Brunswick, Heidi has been raising her sheep, harvesting the wool and hand-dyeing/spinning the wool.  Her farm is based on animal friendly practices - be sure to check her blog for some cute pictures of these adorable 'wool farmers'!.  Her yarns are full of colour and richness; visit her Etsy shop to order.  If you don't see the colour you like, create a custom listing and she'll make it for you. 

Hope you enjoy.
