Johanna Svensson, 19-year-old Indianola resident, placed first in the senior category of the Washington state Make It With Wool competition. The outfit that won her first place was an electric blue wool melton jacket paired with black wool slacks and a white wool top.

Her design will travel to the national level of competition in San Antonio, Texas, in January.

Also competing in the senior category was Sarah Hoenig of Port Orchard. Sarah's outfit replicated a 1940s look with a wool skirt, weskit and jacket. The Washington Make It With Wool competition took place on Oct. 27 in Yakima. Sixteen contestants participated in the state-wide event after qualifying from seven regional district competitions. The participants modeled garments they had sewn with fabric composed of at least 60 percent wool.

Events are held each year, and participants of all ages are encouraged to enter.
