Coasters From Recycled Sweaters

Making coasters today from some wool sweaters I picked up over the last several months at estate sales.

I felted the sweaters in the washing machine by running them through a couple cycles of hot water with some laundry detergent, then drying them on a cotton setting in the dryer. The result is some awesome fabric that won’t ravel when cut and that provides a perfect barrier between your cup o’ joe and the surface you rest it on. A perfect material to work with, I say!
