Truck Report 9/12/2014

Good morning, WoolFans! How's back-to-school season treating you?

For us, Fridays in fall -- and in winter, spring, and summer -- mean a fresh delivery of scraps from our two Pacific Northwest woolen mills. This week, the Pendleton truck delivered: 150 pounds of wooly worms ($1.00 per pound) and 300 pounds of fuzzy selvage (just $1.50 per pound for the month of September).

Have a great weekend!

Needle Felted Owl Project

We found a simple and sweet needle felting project that's perfect for beginners. If you've been wanting to give needle felting a try, The Magic Onions has the tutorial -- and we've got all the carded wool and needles you need.



Browse around the site for other felting tutorials, like a cute bunny and wet felted pebbles. There are lots of good projects to choose from!

Creative Customers: Sugar Skulls Bag

Nikki is a long time customer here at the Woolen Mill Store. Recently, she brought in a bag made using our Sugar Skulls blanket weight jacquard fabric.


The handles are scavenged from another bag -- what a great idea and a perfect color! And though the lining isn't a Pendleton fabric, it goes perfectly with the Sugar Skulls.


If you have a project you'd like to show off, we would love to see it! You can send us pictures via email or bring your creation to the store and we'll take pictures for you.

A Dapper Dog Visits the WMS

Meet Bison. Bison (and his family) visited the Woolen Mill Store on Sunday... sporting a Pendleton bandanna!



What a supreme sweetheart. We whipped up a braided tug toy using wooly worms to keep Bison entertained while his family did some shopping -- they picked out blanket weight jacquard fabric to make Bison some custom coats for the winter.

We're always delighted to see our four-legged customers! Leashed, well-mannered pups are welcome any time at the Woolen Mill Store.

Truck Report 9/5/2014

Good morning, WoolFans! We hope you had a great first week of September. We're having a blast with our annual Fall Fabric Sale, where every single fabric at the Woolen Mill Store is on sale for at least 30% off the regular retail price per yard. Stop in and see what we've got -- quantities of some fabrics are limited, and when they're gone, they're gone for good.

But it's business as usual for this Friday morning. The Pendleton truck has been and gone, and brought us fresh mill scraps for your weekend crafting: 200 pounds of header, 300 pounds of fuzzy selvages, and 200 pounds of wooly worms.

We'll see you soon!
