Another example of how my/Lynn's love of texture knows no bounds! This one is ultra warm, with vintage Canadian-made 100% pure carded wool "Siwash" brand from Spinrite yarns of Listowel, Ontario worked alongside Sirdar's Highlander Aran brand from England (70% wool, 30% acylic), and an 80%/20% acrylic/wool blend also from England. For the cowl neck, a textured loopy wool was added as you'll see in the last close-up photo. The result is a supremely soft and spacious cloud of warmth that looks great on larger bodies like mine (though be warned, you need to be at least a large size to carry this one off as intended---if you are only small or medium, it would be like a super-sloppy mini-dress and it might fall off your shoulders if you are small boned!!--our mannequin is about a medium size and I had to put a blouse on it underneath to stop the shoulder slide!).
It will need hand washing, please, in lukewarm water, mild soap, rinsing well (squeeze by cupping between your hands or pressing it against sink to remove water---please do not wring!). Roll between a fluffy towel to remove excess moisture then shape it laying it flat away from a direct source of heat to dry. Dry cleaning is another alternative and might be advisable since when wet, this large garment would be almost as unwieldy as a polar bear!!.
Measurements follow, taken on the sweater exterior, relaxed while laid flat, so please allow for the thick stitches and your preferred ease, while bearing in mind that this is a very stretchy knit fabric with a rather fluid shape (of course as it stretches sideways, you'd loose some length).
Incidentally, if you like precision, you might not like these new artwear sweaters of mine which are created with just a tape measure from the design inside my head.

Awesome seller and item. It arrived just in time for Christmas, and my girlfriend has not taken it off since. Thanks again for such a wonderful item.
Beautiful product! Thank You so much!
I was so excited when my sweaters arrived yesterday! It seemed like a week early!Love my sweaters. Thanks so much. I'll be back for more.
I love, love, love my shrug! I saw a very similar item at a high end craft show for far more money. This one is just as nice... better actually b/c I love the colors so much more then the more expensive one I saw. A wonderful seller... thank you, I will treasure my hand made shrug for yrs to come like it was made especially for me.
Lynn, this is SO beautiful. It was a gift from my boyfriend (chosen together!) and I nearly cried when it arrived I loved it so much!!! You were so lovely to deal with. You are super super talented and the colors are to die for. Thank you x100000
