Reclaimed Wool, Heidi Leugers

ARTIST STATEMENT

At Reclaimed Wool, I've been practicing zero waste since 1998.

When it comes to consumption and production, how something is made is often more important than what is being made. I recycle wool from textile mill waste and post consumer garments. I source virgin wool from specialty sources, and direct from shepherds in the Pacific Northwest and across the USA. When I create a potholder, or angel ornament, or wool pincushion, all the waste is reclaimed and used in the production of new items. - Heidi Leugers
