Baa, baa, zu, zu, have you any wool? The answer: Ewe baahht. For 30 years, Lake Leelanau’s Baabaazuzu has been stitching up cozy, one-of-a-kind pieces, from hats and mittens to jackets and vests. Back in 1993, co-founder Sue Burns took a dryer-shrunken wool sweater and turned it into a business, upcycling reclaimed wooly materials into a fashion line that can be found at nearly 600 retailers worldwide. Not bad for a laundry fail, huh? Shoppers, look for the Arctic Fingerless Gloves this season ($55), which offer some serious warmth with their berber fleece lining but still leave your fingers free to text, type, or just pull that cup of tea closer. Visit Baabaazuzu at 1006 S. Sawmill Road in Lake Leelanau (open 11am-5pm Monday through Friday; closed on weekends) or shop all their warm and fuzzy goods at
