I do this as well all the time. I have a lot of High quality natural fiber, cashmere/merino from second hand stores as people assume merino will itch, all the sweaters I've bought have been new...as if they where gifted items then donated right away, most with the tag still on. I spend so little that I have everything dry cleaned and I keep em for years.

today was so cold (ontario canada) -25*C (-11*F) the bodies of frozen squirrels are falling from their nests in my trees....the back looks like a graveyard with many little mounds...one is stuck to the snow, so i'll have to get a different shovel and dig under him for disposal... I'll leave the little brick-like bodies in a pile away from my yard, although i'm fairly sure if they were merely in hibernation dormancy, they'd wake up once having hit the snow on the ground??   they'll likely be food for the coyotes now, it's that cold.
