I still don't think it'd be such a BAD idea.. wool doesn't burn, it soaks up moisture, it's natural so it's breathable, BUT it is very thermal... At least a knitted House Hat, to help keep the heat from escaping through the top... haha.

My place is very tiny. It was a garage that they turned into a duplex. Use some super chunky wool, held 4 strands togethers on US 50.. Knit like... 10 HUGE scarves with them and sew em together and voila... haha.

I must admit that I have considered putting old skeins of acrylic yarn in the attic as insulation.

I've got the yarn. Does anyone know where I can find a 2500" circular needle?

Let me talk to hubby, he's dragging out all his electrical wire in order to wire his new shop. He's got rolls of it, I'll just ask him to grind and weld on some needle points and we're off and running.
