The Path of the Capelets Dream pt 2-Eco-Fashion

 Lets get into some behind the scenes info on the Capelets.

Splendid Fairy Wren Capelets were woven in a small batch run using my 100% plant based exotic fiber blends. These capelets are made with sustainability in mind.  Each one is woven with a medium weight tencel paired with a uniqure blend of tencel with cotton/hemp , seacell,rose, hemp, or dandelion!    I hand paint and dye tencel yarn, made from eucalyptus trees,  which is one of the most environmentally friendly and sustainable yarns out there! They have a wonderful drape and are luxuriously soft.

The pattern I designed for the Splendid Fairy Wren Capelet had to be something that had a fun play on shapes with curves in it. I went with a networking draft pattern, which created  a pattern that embodied the roundness of the wren's little body and reminded me of bubbles. The various shades of blue and black created a fabric with a nice sense of whimsy to it. 


Wearing these Capelets brings out your confidence, as seen in these pictures from the Paris photoshoot. I do not like being in front of the camera but wearing the capelets gave me a boost in confidence because I was wearing such a dreamy garment. It made me feel fabulous and it will make you feel good and put together as well!✨

Handwoven fashion doesn't have to be serious all the time! I made these for you to wear in all aspects of your life and that includes fun times!
