alpaca wool is the new faux fur

i can't believe i have never posted these lovely pics of katie in my absolute favorite pieces in the shop, the ultra- soft alpaca markham collar, (this is one of alpaca lux limited version's of the original lamb's wool, i've also re-made a Cambridge in a grey wolf alpaca), i was so heavily inspired by vintage fur stoles, & the alpaca just really makes it so perfect & so close to a faux fur even, especially in the colour fawn.

sometimes i wonder that the things i love won't always be so widely appreciated, & i just cross my fingers that someone else will get it... you know what i mean? i've been taking more risks with fibers in my knitting & with things i really want to be wearing too!


  1. wow, that's so impressive, it really looks amazing! i'm positive it will be a hit, you really nailed the vintage fur collar look :)

  2. I always like the look of fur but can't bear to touch the real stuff (or O.T.T. realistic fakes).

    This collar looks great without the ickiness. :-)

  3. Don't worry about people not "getting it"... I think this collar is one of the best things I've seen in a while! Keep going, making new things from your inspirations. Everything you make is awesome!!!

  4. what type of lipstick is she wearing? It looks so good!


don't be shy, please leave me a comment!
