This unique garment was handwoven by me, using a mix of yarns.
The base is a wool and acrylic mix, while most of the fabric (the grey) is pure grey wool from italian sheep.
I like to use vintage and factory waste yarns, to minimize the impact that we have on the planet; I make sure that the yarn is intact and well washed, of course!
Each of my adorned neckwarmers is a one of a kind labor of love, from spinning the yarn, to weaving it, and creating the copper elements (buttons and beads) that I add to it.
In this case, after weaving the piece, I added the flashes of red and yellow wool – the flames of the Phoenix – which I later wet felted along with the neckwarmer. This gives it a sturdy feeling: it’s still so soft on the skin, but very protective against the cold.
I embroidered it with handmade copper beads and czech glass beads, then added the handmade copper button and stylized flame in the string.
A mix between a garment and a piece of jewelry, sure to catch the eye of the observer, this one has a very wild and magical feeling.
The neckwarmer is a strip of woven wool fabric, that you wrap around your neck, and secure with the string, twisting it around your neck and then around the button. This ensure that you can style it in different ways, and that it will fit everybody.
Size: 22 cm (8.6 inches) wide, 65 cm (25.5 inches) long.
Each piece is unique.
Make sure to hand wash it, with cold or lukewarm water and a delicate soap, and then dry it flat. Avoid washing machine and dryer and it will last you a long time!
