"London" vest

After beating around a bush for some time, I had finally decided to make a vest. Yes, it was not an easy decision after being stuck mainly in accessories :-) Making clothes seemed to be an entirely new dimension to me. It was not easy to choose a color either -- first I considered gray, then green... And then the weather started getting colder and colder. 
Spontaneously, having stumbled upon a lovely beige piece of silk in the felting supplies shop, I bought it together with beige wool roving perfectly matching it, kick-starting thus the process of creating this vest. 
I find this color extremely charming! It is so simple and bright, with a slight shade of peach pink to it. The vest appears very minimalistic, without any decor, adorned just with delicate silk lining on the inside.

Fits sizes 44-46 rus (38-40 eur). Made out of superfine Merino wool and 
hand dyed Margilan silk.

The true autumn scarves

Well, September is here and I've made a couple of scarves in indian summer pallette. Although one of them is typically bright orange and rust red, autumn can be not only about the fiery leaves on the trees :-) The second scarf (first on the picture) has subdued, sort of rainy day gamut -- fine purple, olive and bluish green, dark brown; cold heavy sky, fallen leaves, wet soil. It seems to be even more autumn-like than the orange one. But I surely love them both equally!
Happy autumn!

Approximate measurements: 190x15 ---> 74,8"x5,9".





Approximate measurements:195x15 cm ---> 76,7"x5,9".

"Phoenix" warm and colorful bright orange nunofelted wrap shawl

"The phoenix is described as a bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self." Wiki

This cozy and large wrap shawl is dedicated to the mythological bird.. It has been handfelted from soft, top quality Italian merino wool, using patches of hand dyed Margilan silk. It's decorated with the variety of shiny Tussah silk threads, fleece locks and colorful yarn. It also has lovely rich and very spectacular texture, and is actually very warm.

Approximate measurements: 160x27 cm ---> 62,9"x10,6".
