This is a delightful three-pound bag of offcuts from our wool production. When we cut and sew garments, there is always a certain amount of negative space between the garment pieces. We can't bear to throw away good material, so we've been holding onto these offcuts for a while and would love for them to find a home with you.
THESE ARE NOT REMNANTS, THEY ARE SMALL SCRAP PIECES! Pieces vary in size anywhere from small, several-inch square pieces or long strips, all the way to larger 1/4 or 1/2 yard chunks. There is no guarantee of what kind of scrap you'll receive, and they are priced accordingly!
- Patchworked garments
- Pieced blankets
- An heirloom lovey or stuffed animal
- Repairs or patches
- Felting or collaging
- Decorative pillow covers
- Anything else you can dream up
ABOUT THE MATERIAL
An immeasurably soft, heavyweight, plain-weave wool. Gorgeous visible heathered texture—expect flecks of ivory and black throughout—and supple, rich handfeel. Not at all itchy, and super warm without excessive weight.
Our wool is sourced entirely in the continental US, drastically reducing the carbon footprint of this material because it’s not being shipped across the globe. The material is Climate Beneficial™, meaning the ranchers providing our fiber utilize land stewardship practices that sequester more carbon than their operation emits.
Our fiber is processed and dyed by a family-owned dye house, spinning mill, and weaving mill, all in the Northeast. Supporting these often decades-old businesses and continuing to invest in the US textile industry is a point of pride for this project. The weight, weave, and colors of our wool were all intentionally chosen and this material is exclusive to Elizabeth Suzann Studio, making each piece one to treasure.

In comparison to our previous Climate Beneficial™ Wool, this looks and feels almost identical to 2019’s “Heavyweight” weave, despite the elimination of the alpaca fiber. The Fawn color is darker and more variegated, but the Charcoal remains the same. The Olive colorway is new.
Hand wash with cold water and wool detergent. Lay flat to dry. For a crisper look, press on high heat with steam and a wool clapper.
*Due to wool's short staple fibers, some pilling is to be expected in areas of high friction. Use a wool brick or sweater shaver to remove pills.
