Amazing piece. Sounds, feels, looks so satisfying. I absolutely can’t wait to build my costume with this.

I bought these bracers as part of a fursuit. They fit perfectly, not too loose or too tight. Definitely will purchase from again!

I LOVE THEM!! They fit well and they look amazing! I can't wait to wear them to my first ren faire next month. I'm going to show them off to my D&D group tomorrow. 😁 Crystal was very helpful and communicated with me to make sure I got exactly what I wanted, and I'm so happy with the result.

Lovely as always. This is my third or fourth dice bag and they’re always top notch. Fully recommend.

Didn't expect the inside to be crocheted, but I love it and can't wait to wear it at the event I'm using it for.
If necessity is the mother of invention, then imagination is the father.

Frequently asked questions
How did you learn how to knit scalemail?
Knitted scalemail is my own invntion. Almost 10 years ago I bought a bunch of scales to make a traditional armor shirt for my husband. About one inch into it I realized that wasn't going to happen. But I had all those scales and I hate waste, so I fooled around with it until I came up with my technique.
Dragonhide knitted scalemail is hand washable, lay flat to dry. If your item has leather laces or plastic inserts, remove them before washing.
Non Dragonhide items will have care instructions in the listing. (I'm adding these now, it might take a while to get them all.)
What is your custom order completion time?
This varies widely by the size of the project. Small custom dice bags can be ready in just a few days, whereas large projects can take weeks. Please contact me for a completion time for your project.
Do you guarantee your work?
I fully guarantee your satisfaction. If you aren't thrilled with your purchase please contact me within seven days of receipt to arrange a refund or exchange.
My work also is warranteed to be without defect and to last. Defects in my work are my problem and I will correct them.
How long will my international order take to arrive?
I'm afraid there is no easy answer for this one. Shipments to Canada usually take less than 2 weeks. Overseas varies between about 1 week up to 6. Occasionally an item gets held in customs, which can delay things further. For many destinations limited tracking is available, your tracking number will be in the email you receive when I ship your order.
Customers in the UK-if your order has not arrived it might be at your local post office. UK customers have informed me that you are supposed to get a card from your postal carrier if custom fees are due, however that card sometimes is not delivered.
Will I have to pay custom/VAT on my order?
I am shipping from Washington state in the US. If you are overseas, the answer is "Maybe." Each country has its own limit before customs apply. Please check your governments website for more information. I do know the UK has a very low threshhold, and in addition to VAT the postal service will collect a handling fee of 8 pounds. Sometimes more expensive items slip through unnoticed, but please be prepared for VAT/customs/handling fee.
