Recycling worn clothing

My wife came to me tonight with a pair of hole laden slippers and asked, “Are these recyclable?”. I know that clothes can, and should, be recycled but I hadn’t really looked into it until now. There are a lot of good sites on the web that offer up suggestions, but it seems that Goodwill is an all purpose recycler. They not only take the good stuff, but also take the unusable stuff and send it off to a recycler who shreds it up for several uses – things like insulation in cars for example.
