Specifically About This Piece:
The wet felted hand dyed (eco friendly dyes) multi-colored alpaca fibers serve as the entire base of this piece and has an open, lacy drape. This piece will turn any sweater/bottom combo into an instantly elegant outfit that's as stylish as it is absolutely easy to wear. Personally I love finding ways to be fashionable that don't require me to tend to the outfit once it's on don't you?


Comes sleeved with cute washing instructions. (You'll just hand wash when necessary!)
~ 51" x 18"

The Idea:
The elegance of the materials juxtaposed with the upbeat whimsy of the "pattern" creates a fun synergy that's as uplifting for the wearer to wear as it is for her companions to experience!

My Process:
To form the main body of the piece fibers are coaxed to form a soft drapey and exceptionally sturdy community by pushing and kneading them together. Sometimes with water sometimes without and always by hand. Colorful details are then layered on one at a time using a combination of specialized needles and more mooshing and coaxing.

My Fibers
Much of the alpaca I use comes from a dear friend who raises champion stock alpacas (judged mainly for their super soft fiber) right here in Kentucky. The other fibers, fine merino wool, angora, cashmere and fun metallics come from across the US and abroad (wool from English sheep, roving from Israeli cria) from other Etsy sellers (don't we all just LOVE Etsy!?).

How Soft?
Imagine the tummy of a kitten - the fluff on a chick - the noggin of a puppy.....that's how soft!


My Gratitude:
Every day I get to go into my studio and work on these pieces is a day I love and look forward to. Your buying one helps me continue having marvelous days and I think the happy energy I experience gets transferred right into each finished piece! I am so grateful to be able to do this, and I thank you sincerely for enjoying what I make and maybe even selecting something from me for your own collection. Thank you!

Comes sleeved with cute washing instructions. Amazingly sturdy and perfectly colorfast!
