I don’t know how many years Gabe (yep, named it) the Giesswein jacket had before I found him in a local op. shop. But I’m looking forward to the cold weather!

Type ‘wool‘ into Facebook Marketplace and you might be in for a surprise!
My local listings that I’ve got my eye on include:
$48 for a 100% Pure Merino Wool, Country Road throw blanket
$20 for 6 rolls of Jumbuk Bairnsdale Wool Yarn
$80 for 100% Merino wool dress by SABA (worn once RRP $399)
$69 for 70% wool trench, made in Australia

Share your awesome finds! #IWOOLWOOLYOU
