Washing Woolens, Rejecting Consumerism: The Regenerative Power of Domestic Skills (Hausfrau Friday)

Our consumer culture wants us to buy cheap, use up, throw things away, and repeat the cycle over and over. The consumption of goods feeds the profit-driven system. Those of us invested in sustainable living seek to maintain and mend and conserve, rather than to use up and throw away. Homemakers have a particular privilege and opportunity in our culture to push back against an extractive culture and use our skills to help create a regenerative one.

Caring for our possessions and prolonging their lifespans is an important component of sustainable homemaking and permaculture living. Today I’m carefully handwashing and caring for my favorite wool sweater as part of my care routine for the possessions in my household.
