UPDATE Gap Recycle Program

Unfortunately, Gap is no longer honoring their Recycle Your Blues program I previously blogged about.  They will still take your jeans, but they will not give you the 30% discount.  Why, might you ask??  Because they are now offering 40% off every pair of jeans in their store.

And trust me, they won't stack the 40% and the 30% - I tried for about 10 minutes to convince the store manager to give me both discounts.  He didn't, but I still got a steal of a deal (just not as big as I wanted) on two pairs of jeans. 

So sorry again about the misinformation - I didn't find out until I went into the store.  Nevertheless, happy shopping!

Fabulous Fabrics: Tweed

Definition: a wool fabric made up of two or more colors in a twill weave (a pattern of parallel diagonal lines).

Tweed can usually be found in jackets and suits during the fall season.  Made up of any colors and a variety of patterns, it makes an excellent layering item for those cool days.  Good quality tweeds are made 100% of wool, although you can find a good quality item made of a mixture of mostly wool and polyester.  My current favorites are from J. Crew:

How to care for it:  Because most tweeds are made of wool, throwing it in the washer isn't the smartest idea, unless you want a mini-tweed item.  Some tweeds are now mixed with a polyester, but your best bet is to follow the care instructions on your clothing item.  Dry cleaning is always a safe bet with this type of fabric.  Wrap in plastic or in a cedar chest for long-term storage.
