Whoa! You can't buy your own item.

  • Handmade
  • Materials: goldenrod flower dye, purple loosestrife flower dye, red sumac berries dye, good shepherd wool yarn, lion brand oatmeal fishermens yarn

The detailing in the sawtooth-patterned yoke of this soft all-wool unisex sweater is from nature's dyes: the dark gray from purple loose-strife flowers, the medium gray from red sumac berries, and the touch of pale yellow from goldenrod flowers (seen in the upper row of points). I dye the yarn myself with what grows near my home in Vermont. I can easily substitute other colors for the points or the little dots of color in the neck pattern, or knit you a traditional crew neckline instead of the rolled collar pictured here.

If you'd like me to make one of these for you or a loved one, I will need measurements and preferences: do you like a loose fit, a snug fit, or something in between? As you can see from the photo, I like the in-between, about four inches larger than the chest circumference, for lots of ease of movement when stacking wood, etc.
Please contact me before or after you order, so I can make sure your sweater will fit, and allow me four to six weeks to make it.

I will need the following measurements, taken snugly (not squeezing) with a measuring tape:
Chest circumference:
Waist circumference (narrowest part of body):
Armpit to wrist (measure around bent elbow)
Armpit to waist (to narrowest part, not to hip):
Armpit to bottom edge (where you want the sweater to end)

Also please let me know if you want a snug fit, a regular fit, or a very roomy fit.

For children's sweaters in a similar style, please look at similar patterns on my website; I may already have the size you want in stock.

Beautiful sweater! We initially purchased a sweater that turned out to be a little tight on our son. We asked to swap it for a larger one we saw on Francette's site but instead of just swapping it for one already made, Francette asked for our sons measurement and knitted him a brand new sweater that fitted perfectly (with a little extra room to grow). Communication was great and Francette kept us updated along the way. Was even accommodating of our tight time line as we were heading off on vacation. Thank you so much!! Great experience.

Wow! This shawl is simply gorgeous! It is pure wool. It is warm, warm, warm. It is the perfect size for daily wear in cold weather. Perfect. It is versatile and will go with anything I wear. The craftsmanship is remarkably good. Better than good. It is great as in professional. The ruffles are so fashionable. There is not a single ounce of acrylic or polyester or nylon or plastic. It flew all the way across this country, from Vermont to Washington state, in two days. Wow!! This item is worth every penny I paid for it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I hope you make more wool shawls with ruffles. I will probably be the first to buy them as Christmas gifts. I'm so glad I found you on Etsy. Wow! And did I say thank you? Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!!

This shawl is luxurious- the pictures just don't do it justice. The acrylic is just as warm as wool and oh-SO-soft. the ruffled edge adds a touch of class. And the button is ingenious designed to be fastened so that the shawl can be worn a number of ways. Not just for keeping cozy in the house, this is a garment you will want to wear and show off!

Received my beautiful shawl a few days after placing my order. To say I'm delighted with the shawl is an understatement; it's soft, warm, beautifully made, the colors are deep and rich. It exceeded my expectations in every way. Thank you!
