I went to a store called Ardene recently. Nothing in that store was made from real materials: no wool, cotton, linen, silk or anything remotely real. The shoes and boots were plastic and so was the jewellry. Everything!
Part of my journey here was to stop contributing to the massive plastic crisis on this Earth. Sheep provide lovely wool and I do crochet and knit in the winter,but I also want to learn to felt larger items, such as coats and even slippers, shoes and boots. The processing of the wool from the sheep to the point that it is ready to use is not something I enjoy, though, so it has not been very progressive. I do not want to buy ANY materials made from plastic. No clothing, no bowls or containers, but that is almost impossible in this world. I certainly did not buy any clothes from that store, either and have been slowly weeding out of my wardrobe things that are synthetic.
I want to wear only beautiful natural fibres and live with them too. I want my sheets to be cotton, organic, and the duvet to be wool, which it is. I want to have only linen and cotton dish towels and organic cotton towels in my home. My summer clothes should be cotton or linen and even wool. I love the mohair socks so much that I wear them the whole year round for foot comfort. Curtains of cotton and linen, upholstery of cotton and linen or leather, and no synthetics are mostly already in place in my home. I have the sheep that produce lovely wool. I just need to make a stronger effort to learn how to use it more and to eliminate synthetic cloth from my home entirely.
I wish others would. Will you?
