Pelle's New Suit
Pelle has a lamb whose coat grows longer and longer, while Pelle’s Sunday suit grows shorter! Pelle shears the lamb, and the wool is carded, spun, dyed and woven. Finally, the tailor makes a new suit for Pelle.
This is a wonderful book to help children understand where their clothes come from and the traditional craft of working with wool.
