Murex is the species of mollusk that produced "Tyrian Purple" the Royal Purple dye for the ancient Phoenicians and Greeks.

The front of this bag was wet-felted of purple and fucia roving. It features a felt amulet filled with aromatic herbs and embroidered. The back was handknitted of natural-dyed yarn from Shilasdair, a yarn company on the Isle of Skye. The long waxed cord is topped with a felt bead. Raku beads by Keith o'Connor, ceramic beads by Deb Becker of Clay River Designs, glass and felt beads finish it off. The bag is fully lined in a beautiful matching cotton/rayon fabric.

Consider hanging it on the wall to hold your precious items or as a small work of art. Or it would easily hang around the neck, but seriously, I think it's too big for that. The bag is 5" wide and 7" long.
