  • Hi Judy! My friend who is a vegan sewer made a boiled vegan wool coat out of some heavy bamboo felt. It cost an arm and a leg per meter but she said it was super warm.

  • Great question Judy- Unfortunately boiled wool is a pretty special fabric with some great qualities.

    Have you seen these Mallee Jackets from Gillian?

    Jess from Muna and Broad
  • Question: Is there a suitable substitute for boiled wool?
    I love the look of the Mallee jacket and of boiled wool in general for so many things, but I’m highly allergic to lanolin and wool (trust me – this problem really sucks). I have yet to find something that makes a good substitute (other than cheap poly fleece). fingers crossed that you have some good ideas.
