source for wool knit fabric

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have a source for wool knit fabric? I want to make my son some wool longies, but I'm a sloooow knitter. I'd like to make my son something like this: http://us.hessnatur.com/shop/productdetail.action?modelCode=26766&pos=1&advertiser=NJB%7CN0J%7CM0B

 

I know they're getting their fabric from somewhere...I just don't have a good source. I don't need to pay for their sewing or their marketing--I'm a good seamstress. 

 

Ideas? Also ISO ideas for other ways to keep my kid warm at night.

maybe you can find used wool sweaters at thrift stores.  i've made all of DD's longies that way and they're super easy and fast too.  just cut up sleeves and look up diy recycled sweater longie patterns.

Totally check the thrift stores.  I just picked up a gorgeous wool/mohair sweater for .99c  on Saturday.  Now to decide if I'm going to turn it into something for my daughter, or turn it into something to sell.

 

Freecycle might be a good place to look too.  Ask if anyone has a moth-eaten wool sweater--if you felt an adult sweater, you ought to be able to get enough good out of it for an infant or toddler.
