My Burgeoning Love of Natural Wool

Ever since the Inspiration Galore Project party ended, I have wanted to use Sundays to share with you non-project related posts.

Sundays have traditionally been a time to rest and relax.   Sharing something different on that day each week seems like a lovely way to celebrate it.

Did you catch last Sunday’s tribute to Quebec City?  It not, you can see it here.


This week I thought I would share with you my growing love of natural wool.  Wool has so many different uses it truly is an amazing fibre.  It is a renewable resource that can be shorn from sheep annually and because it is biodegradable it is so much friendlier to the environment.

Here are some of my most recent wool finds…

Wool covered soap

When I was in Quebec City I found this amazing wool covered soap bar.  The wool completely encases the soap and works as a natural exfoliant when you are showering.  It is supposed to last for about 100 washes and when the soap runs out, you can continue to use the wool.  How cool is that?  bar of Lavender soap covered in natural wool

Wool Drier Balls

Wool dryer balls are an all-natural way to increase fluffiness and reduce static as dryer loads tumble. Dryer balls also help to soften clothes without the use of chemicals.  These dryer balls should last for about 1000 loads! wool dryer balls

Wool Covered Bird

How adorable is this little wool covered bird? He came from a shop located in the Chateau Frontenac that specializes in natural and traditional goods and has been run by a family for 4 generations. little wood bird covered in natural wool

Wool Garland

I was almost giddy when I found this wool garland at Simons in Quebec City.  As soon as I saw it, it spoke to me. The all-natural wool balls look so pretty with my red and white Scandinavian Christmas decor and I absolutely love that it looks like it might have been around to decorate a house 100 years ago. red and white balls of wool made into a garlandnatural wool garland died redsIt turned out to be the perfect length to hang from one of my banisters and the little bird couldn’t look any more at home ♥a rustic wool garland hanging from a banisternatural wool Christmas garland hanging on banisterI am excited to keep growing my collection of wool decor and will be keeping my eye out for other ways to incorporate it into my home.

Have you fallen in love with something new lately?  I would love to hear about what speaks to you.

Enjoy your Sunday!
