There are so many fabric options for making a cozy wool slipcover that looks chic and doesn’t itch.
- Felt a 100% wool or wool-rich fabric for a soft, cozy blanket look.
- Choose a washed wool or wool-blend menswear fabric in a herringbone, windowpane or tweed. Wool blended with polyester or acrylic often feels softer than some 100% wool fabrics.
- Re-purpose a wool camping or army blanket for smaller pieces like cushions and ottomans. Felt it to soften.
- Look for women’s wool-blend apparel fabric in a fun oversized houndstooth or a colorful plaid.
