You could make a bunch of mittens felted wool mittens ROCK! Or you could make a pillow, or sew up a sweet bag.

I have a blog dedicated to all things recycled wool (felted wool sweaters). I post a tutorial every Tuesday... Tutorial Tuesday! Check it out...

There are quite a few projects here using old sweaters. 

You could felt the jumpers as they are, and see what size they end up (as a child, I acquired several "new" sweaters made of felt because my aunt had trouble getting the hang of her new washer-dryer).

If they are not right to pass on to somebody you know, you can then use them to cut panels from to make anything you like - purse, hats, toys etc.

I know nothing about felting wool sweaters, but they seem to know a lot HERE.
