Abby Mages is the founder and proprietor of Woolestudio, a cozy little shop full of wool carpets, blankets and other woolen objects located at 4730 NE Portland, OR.

We met Abby back in the late 90’s when we were interior painters and she owned Environmental Building Supply. She, along with her partner, Markus Stoffel founded EBS in 1992, way before “green” was the thing. Environmental Building Supply, which later became Ecohaus, and is now Green Depot, was one of YOLO Colorhouse’s first distributors. Needless to say, there’s a special place in our hearts for Abby and Markus and all they have done to pioneer the green community in Portland and beyond.

Abby’s newest venture, Woolestudio, hones her interests and knowledge of natural fibers and all the beautiful things created with wool. For a special one on one consultation, or just to see all of her wooly wares, please call or email for an appointment, and Abby will gladly show you around (503) 943-2788, or

Abby and I spent an afternoon pairing wool carpet samples with YOLO paint samples, look at all the awesome colors and styles she carries!









What better gift for the holidays than a snuggly Pendleton blanket?

Or how about these buckin’ bronc seat cushions?

These beautiful felt coasters would make great stocking stuffers!  And the felt place mats would make any table setting more inviting.
