Last, but most certainly not least: CC had the pleasure of meeting a local Designer yesterday whose gorgeous wares are made exclusively of recycled sweaters!
Nancy Frodermann, owner of Woolen It Be Nice, based out of Avon, CT, crafts the most exquisite scarves! They are 100% wool or cashmere, crafted entirely of found garments.
CC bought the forest green and off-white one (above, right) for a mere $40!
You may even recognize one of your own castoffs among the beautifully hand-made pieces below (note the American Eagle logo on the pink striped scarf!).
Nancy also makes accessories such as fingerless gloves (fab!) and decorative flower pins.
