On October 31, Woolites Jeff and Amy opened a natural clothing store in downtown Bellingham, Washington. Their store is called Naked Clothing and can be discovered at 126 W. Holly Street. The store grew out of Jeff and Amy’s “beta test” this summer when they opened shop every Saturday across from the Farmer’s Market in Bellingham. Now they’ve expanded their line, featuring not only the signature prints Jeff silk screens out of The Woolley Mammoth, but also other quality natural fiber clothing, gifts and green home items, even including bamboo furniture! Jeff and Amy’s vision is to help create a more natural, sustainable world, one piece of clothing or home item at a time.

While Jeff and Amy have been gone, uh, constantly, the rest of our household has filled up nicely with several new Woolites who relocated from the Seattle area. Escape to the country! Also, Chris, Will, Ryan, Jamie and Jeff have been hard at work building a woodshed large enough to shelter a big load of wood- enough to keep us warm through these chilly nights.
Keeping on top of firewood is one of those consciousness-building exercises. If you forget you are cold. To make it work you must remember all the steps: Cutting down, chopping, stacking, building the shed, building the fires, keeping the fires going…
We rely on our wood stoves as a main source of heat in the house. Additionally, there is radiant heat piping available. With the enormity of the house, relying on firewood helps us save money and plus it is very cozy. The four house cats are usually curled up on the stones surrounding the fireplace in the great room. Or if you put a high chair next to the stove in the kitchen they will snag the prime spot quickly.
We are also very lucky that if we get extremely chilled outside, there’s always the sauna! Stay warm out there. Warm and woolley.
