The Proud-as-a-Peacock Cocoon is an original TrickyKnits ultra-luxurious custom handknit design celebrating 4 years in January 2012 as a non-stop best-seller for professional newborn photographers who are looking for high-end custom props with more versatility and BIG texture in their handknit pieces.
This will be handknit for you when you place your order in a deliciously soft merino in crisp white with a black tufted merino as the accent. It features a generous TrickyKnits original fanback collar that can be spread flat as a colorful backdrop, or gathered to create a scrumptious ruffle to cradle your tiny subject. You can roll the collar over for another look. The invisible drawstring around the top of the cocoon allows you complete control over how tight or loosely you want this piece to fit. Lace-up corset design allows you to control how much or how little of your tiny subject you want to see.
The bottom features a drawstring opening to give you the option to cinch it closed, or leave it open to let tiny piggies peep through.
The sumptuous texture and striking contrast of this piece make it a picture-perfect prop for tender newborn photography. The loosely handknit fabric has plenty of stretch.
This style is available in countless colorways, including boy, girl, and neutral. See the other listings in my shop, or contact me to design your signature piece.
Note: The TrickyKnits original Proud-as-a-Peacock Ruffled Fanback Cocoon is NOT STOCKED - it is created for you after you have paid for your order. Due to popular demand, PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 3 WEEKS for your custom newborn photography prop to be handknit. Rush orders are available on a limited basis - please contact me to discuss.
