Masks, Felted Capelets and Accessories

Brooklyn, New York | 23 Sales

Announcement    Welcome to Small Stars*, where you will find a collection of recycled and felted cashmere, mohair and merino wool accessories,including capelets, jewellery and unique household items. We are proud to be eco-friendly and like the idea of creative re-use.

Our capelets are each felted and hand stitched with unique trim and vintage buttons. They made a striking accessory and are great because they can be used for a windy afternoon at the beach, to have a little extra warmth when it cools down at night, or as a little protection against drizzling rain (We're English and we think about these things!)

Right now we are using our super hero stitching skills for the force of good to make masks instead of capes, although I'm sure capes will come back soon for all this lounging we are doing!

Small Stars has been going strong since January 2010. We have been featured in numerous online articles including the Etsy Blog.

We hope you enjoy our hand stitched creations and have as fun wearing them as we did creating them!

Welcome to Small Stars, home of vintage inspired felted capelets.

All my capes are inspired by fairytale characters, or their relations, that I have enjoyed creating capes around. I have tried to include quotes from the tale they were inspired by, so you can go back and look up the tales if you wish.

I make the caplets with vintage buttons, trim and reclaimed contemporary or vintage sweaters and this means that each item is slightly different. They are sometimes machine stitched, but mostly all hand stitched (patiently with love!) and so have a hand crafted feel.

The age of the buttons mean they are often slightly different, or have slight imperfections that time has blessed them with, and this is part of their unique charm.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I do returns on an individual basis.

But generally, I will return the item if it comes back worn in good condition and providing you pay for the cost of shipping on both ends- this means you will get a refund for the price of the item, but will lose the shipping fee. This is a standard practice.

I want you to be happy, and so am happy to exchange or offer a refund.
Payment
I prefer Paypal, and will message you to let you know I have received payment and when the item has shipped.

Please let me if you have any problems with Paypal, or would like confirmation I have received payment etc.
Shipping
I ship Priority mail within the US, this means you get your item in 2-3 days.
I will email you personally as soon as the item has shipped. If you like a cheaper shipping option, please message me, and we will figure one out. It will take longer, though.

I will ship overseas, please convo me so we can work out a price on shipping as this will vary.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like a favourite sweater turned into a capelet, I would be happy to do a custom order, please message me.

If you also have a favourite memory associated with some buttons, I would be happy to use them to inspire a capelet. You can choose colour for the material and trim, to complement the buttons and I will create something unique for you.
