I absolutely LOVE these! I've wanted a pair of leg warmers for a long time, so I reached out to Shell to commission a pair. They worked with me to decide a color and pattern I loved, and sent me updates every step of the way. These leg warmers fit me perfectly, are GORGEOUS, and are amazing at keeping my always-cold legs warm while sitting at a desk all day WFH. Can't recommend Shell and their shop any more highly!

This yarn is even prettier in person than it is in the photo! It’s so soft. The shipping was super fast, too!

I love these fingerless gloves! They're soft, warm, and very comfortable. My apartment has been pretty chilly lately, so I got these to wear while working from home- and they're perfect for this. Shipping was super fast as well.

Seller is incredibly helpful and communicative, shipping was transparent and timely, and oh by the way this yarn is *GORGEOUS*! Beautiful color saturation and the yarn is pillowy soft. Would absolutely order from SeaborneCloudStudio again. Thanks for everything!
