A couple of months ago I hit the jackpot of the best quality wool I have ever found in a charity shop:
Wool from Skein Queen, The Yarn Yard and Mirasol.
The skeins were 99p each and the orange Mirasol was undone from its skein and in a bag - £1.49 for 100g. It's Llama wool, beautifully soft and a gorgeous colour. The light brown yarn has been sent to a new home as couldn't see myself knitting with laceweight, but am hoping to use the soft self-striping yarns and the gorgeous green in a project soon.
I hope the person who donated the wool to the charity shop would be pleased their yarns have gone to an appreciative home!
Shortly after that, in the most expensive, boutique-style charity shop of them all, I was chuffed to find some lovely denim:
Actually denim, not just 'denim-like'!
It was £8.99 for just over 2 metres, so not the cheapest charity shop fabric I've ever bought, but a fair price for the quality. Maybe it'll become that pinafore-style dress I've been thinking about? Now it's moving into Autumn I feel like sewing with slightly heavier fabrics.
Have you made any good charity shop purchases recently?
