We have nearly all our supplies! It’s been a couple weeks now since we ordered everything, and we keep getting little packages in the mail. We just have to go pick up our wool at the post office. My husband and I have been going back and forth about how large this package will be—or if it will be multiple packages. This is 30 lbs of wool, after all!

Here is how the cost has worked out so far:
Organic Cotton Muslin (58″ wide and slightly heavier than regular muslin)- $46.32, plus $7.34 shipping
3″ thick virgin wool batts (58″ x 98″, 3 lbs) – $350 (10 batts @ $35 each), plus $76.50 shipping
Set of 3 Mattress needles- $5.00, plus $2.00 shipping
Button thread (heavy duty cotton thread, 500 yards)- $5.00, plus $3.00 shipping

Supply total:
$572.72

While you certainly can’t buy an all-wool mattress with an organic cotton cover for that price, it remains to be seen how many hours of labor this takes to make. ;) We shall see…
