The trick to shortening jeans and still leaving the distressed look at the bottom.
When wool is washed and dried, it is transformed: The fibers pull together to produce the soft, thick fabric we call felt. This is unintentional, of course. But you can shrink a sweater on purpose -- one that's old, with holes or stains, perhaps -- turning it into a medium that's wonderful for crafting.
Ideas for a shrunken, felted wool sweater
buy a sweater at the thrift, cut off sleeves, and stitch to regular socks.
