I used gorgeous vintage wool in brown and raw silk in gold to create this Bogong moth, Agrotis Infusa, native of Australia. These moths fly north to escape the hot summer and return south in autumn to their winter breeding grounds.

You'll love the contrast of textures, the rough wool and the shininess of the silk when it catches the light.

You can wear this and hang it in your home when you aren't wearing it! It comes with a brooch clasp as well as three thread loops on the back of the wings to attach a cord.

This moth is bigger than the real-life version: the better to marvel at the details and textures!

Wingspan 5", body 2.5" long. (approx 13 x 6.5 cm)
