This item sold on October 24, 2012.
PLEASE NOTE: The listing is for one triangular brooch. Each brooch varies slightly - I will send a randomly selected one from the ones available, but if you have a specific request please let me know.
In the photo showing four brooches, the brooches on the far left and far right are still available.
I have made these quite thick by sandwiching a piece of the same wool inside two triangles and stitching them together by hand with grey thread around the edges.
These are soft, semi-felted wool. I cut the triangles so that the tips have some of the lighter shade of grey that featured on the arm of the garment. The white embroidered dashes of 'snow' roughly cover the lighter shaded area.
2.5 inches high (6.5 cm)
* Wool salvaged from a sweater (80% lamswool, 20% nylon - the synthetic content isn't obvious though) Whoever owned it last put it in a boil wash and it shrank and partly felted.
* New wool yarn
* Metal brooch pin sewn securely to the back with wool yarn. The pins run vertically with the hinge at the bottom
Brooches make a great gift. I'm happy to send directly to gift recipients but you will need to add the address in your verified paypal account and please tell me in the message to seller so that I can tailor the note with the package appropriately! I can offer simple eco friendly giftwrapping on request - contact me for details.
