Repurposed Wool Products
Rivertown Cargo creates repurposed wool products such as felted wool mittens that are unique and exclusive, wool hand warmers in the shape of Michigan, and wool kitchen hot pads. Wool sweaters are recycled into new and useful products! Wool mittens made from repurposed wool sweaters are unique as there are three wools used that coordinate with each other. Embellished with a button on each cuff, these zany and fun repurposed wool mittens will keep your hands warm on the coldest of days. These recycled wool mittens are created using wool from three sweaters that are felted by washing them in hot water and drying in the dryer on the highest setting. This process causes the wool to shrink into a tighter knit that provides a great barrier to the cold, long winters we have in Michigan. These wool mittens coordinate with each other but the outer hands do not “match”. This makes each pair unique as there are no two pairs that are ever alike.
The one of a kind Michigan Hand Warmers are made from repurposed wool & filled with rice. These wool hand warmers with the shape of Michigan can be heated in the microwave to keep hands warm or placed in the freezer and used as cold packs. The Wool Michigan Hand Warmers measure 3 1/2 inches by 5 inches and available in a variety of colors.
The one of a kind Wool Hot Pads are repurposed wool sweaters are recycled into a set of kitchen wool hot pads. Wool is a great insulator and works well for deflecting the heat from a hot pot or pan. The Kitchen Wool Hot Pads measure 7 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches and available in a variety of colors.
