The finished jacket....as I mentioned, it had been going into the reds and ochres, but on the day I dyed it, it just had to become blues and greens....
Felting, drying, stitching, fulling, then dyeing....then I added the finishing stitches. Layers of intention. I used some lovely fine silk yarn in gold, but the predominant yarn is a Koigu KPPPM.
I find it a bit crazy that I have my own yarn company and don't dye my own embellishing yarns, but I really love Koigu for this. I love their colourways and the colour intervals, and since it is perfect for me, and my desired outcome, I am happy to support a wonderful Canadian yarn company!
Combinations of craters, organza circles, prefelt stitches, and then hundreds of french knots. It is so wonderful to be working on a piece that can have as much time as I want to give it....no commercial pressure....this piece will be for sale, but it is not made with production in mind.
Onto the next celestial piece...this is just the start of the collection.....
