Monet’s Peacock. Handwoven elegant cape in super soft merino and silk mohair.
The base of the cape is a hand dyed gradient NZ merino in shades of teal, blues and lavender grey. This is an incredibly soft, elegant, high quality wool.
Four different shades of hand dyed silk mohair were used to create a gradient across the cape: starting with a lavender, through the dusty blues, into teal green – very much resembling a Monet landscape.
The cape rests on your shoulders as a casual coat, but can also be worn thrown over one side as a wrap. It can also be worn belted in a boho look. Perfect for an evening out, or snuggling on the sofa or deck.
The middle back seam has been hand stitched to avoid loosening.
The cape has been hand washed and brushed, and steam pressed.
Materials: Silk mohair on NZ merino. Hand twisted fringe. Hand wash only. No iron. Brush when wet, let dry, brush, steam finish.
This one-off piece is Work 134. I never weave the same cloth or item twice. Every piece is unique and numbered, every creation has a story to tell.
Merino wool comes from our Merino sheep and is renowned for its exceptional properties: its fantastic softness, durability, cooling/heating and breathability. The fibres of Merino are softer, finer and more sensitive than many other fibres – the main difference to other wools.
Silk mohair is like wearing a cloud, and the combination with the merino makes for an absolutely super soft garment.
