Need a crafty green way to upcycle an old wool sweater? Here’s how to make a wool sweater Mason jar cozy, to help keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold and leave your precious hand the perfect hand temperature while you drink.
1. Felt a wool sweater. Here’s how to felt a wool sweater in washing machine.

That being said, I’ve never had a problem with a clogged washing machine, even when I didn’t do this. But our plumbing is so half-hearted that I figure better safe than sorry…

Although I splurged and bought myself a super awesome water bottle, I really need to do this. I love my mason jars as drinking vessels. And, I only own 2 “coffee” mugs, so I could use more glasses for tea.
