IT'S A WRAP
This turned out better than I thought! It's the perfect weight to wear over a sweater or jacket. In fact I am sitting here with it wrapped around my shoulders as I am doing this post. The silk keeps the texture of the wool off your neck and chin.
Even though it is a light blue I would consider it neutral because of the rich yummy moss brown silk lining.
Soft and warm are the best words to describe this OOAK upcycled wrap. The light blue tweed wool is from a vintage (1970's) skirt,the dark mossy brown silk lining is new fabric. I added a wavy stitching detail out of metallic thread.
Adding the carrier helps keep the wrap in place.
A wonderful vintage broach would be a nice added detail.
I would suggest either dry cleaning or washing in cold water on delicate and air drying.
Wrap measures 21x54 It would easily fit up to a large.
