About

Phyllis Rothwell Affrunti - Dancer/Director/Choreographer/Knitter-

Hello,
As a professional dancer, I am always looking for stylish ways to keep me warm during class and in the theater. WearWellCo is my own personal line of leg warmers and soon to be back warmers that will keep you cozy. All are hand made and unique. They have adjustable elastics at the top of the leg to fit you just the way you need them. You can cut off the ends of the elastic or keep the bow and tuck it in. The choice is yours!

WearWellCo leg warmers are worn by Principals and Soloists in Ballet Idaho, Ballet West, Eugene Ballet, San Antonio Ballet, Project Flux and Kansas City Ballet.

I do take orders if you would like a specific style and length. I will have a color palate for you to choose from soon. Until then, just contact me with your desires.

Enjoy, stay warm and keep dancing.
