Wool may be itchy and warm when used in blankets, sweaters and other forms of apparel, but when used sparingly, it lends texture to your fashion ensembles. For instance, bracelets and other accessories made with wool can be worn any time of the year without being itchy or too warm. Knowing how to make a bracelet with wool doesn't take many materials and gives you the opportunity to create jewellery pieces to complement any outfit.
Snip an 8-inch length of medium-gauge jewellery wire.
Loop both ends of the wire by bending each end inward by 1/8 of an inch.
Squeeze a line of fabric glue down the length of the wire between each looped end.
Snip a length of wool yarn measuring 24 inches. Wrap this length of warn around the length of glued wire in a spiral formation. Do this up and down the wire until all of the yarn is wrapped around it. Squeeze a small dot of glue onto the free end to adhere it into place.
Snip a length of wool yarn measuring 12 inches in a colour differing from the last one you chose. Squeeze a line of glue down the length of coated wire and wrap the second length of yarn in a spiral formation around it.
Bend the wire into the shape of a cuffed bracelet.
Simply slide the wool bracelet on your wrist like a cuff.
