Goathair vest upcycled from vintage rug for medium women and small men. We decommissioned our vintage goat hair rug recently when we moved. I took it to one of those commercial laundries that have the huge machines. Presto chango---now I have a large, beautiful piece of goat hair fabric: the individual goat multi-hair strands are--- as you might already know, ---attached to a heavy base of what appears to be woven wool fabric (now deliciously felted after agitation in the washing machine).

This item is project #2 from this upcycyled rug. The vest has all seams and edges (except the bottom which is a selvedge) protected by a crocheted edge in a matching yarn (it has the appearance of a blanket-stitched edge).

Sizing is one size fits most medium women and most small men since the open front of a vest permits a range of chest/bust sizes and the armholes were purposefully generous in cut.

Easy care by machine washing in cool water on a gentle cycle---though it should be dried flat away from a source of heat (roll in a large fluffy towel to remove excess moisture then lie flat on a dry towel).

Measurements follow, taken on garment exterior, so please allow for fabric thickness and your preferred ease:
Chest at underarms: 19"/48.5 cm. or 38"/96.5 cm. around
Length from neck edge: 23"/58.5 cm.
Shoulder edge to shoulder edge:18"/46 cm.
Bottom edge: 38"/96.5 cm. around

This ships via airmail (to USA) or expedited parcel (within Canada).
