Truly White Wool - Does It Exist?

Contessa has been asked this question more than once – "Does truly white wool exist, and if so, where can it be purchased?" Well here is a good alternative.

Truly White Wool – Does It Exist?


Truly White Wool

Have you ever looked for white wool? Truly white wool, not cream-colored, not "winter white", not beige, but something that is closer to "snow white". It really does not exist! Sheep aren't "snow white", they are a creamier color. So, what is a "woolie quilter" to do when they need a whiter white for their project? Try bamboo felt! It comes in a much whiter shade than wool, but it looks like wool and feels almost silky. It comes ready to use; and can be cleaned in the same way as you would wool. The bonus attributes are that it is a bit thinner to cut and stitch through, so it makes cutting delicate (small) shapes even easier and it doesn't attract moths.

So, the next time that you need truly white wool or a wool alternative, try some bamboo felt.
