Made to Order!!!
This item has now sold, but I would be more than happy to make something similar as a custom order, bear in mind no two of my items will be exactly the same…
This sage green /dark green waistcoat was inspired from a wonderful walk on wild Dartmoor…visiting a moss covered woods filled with different shades of green, It was so beautiful I wanted to recreate these colors….so….here is what I made!!!
This is a hand felted merino wool piece.As always I felt onto muslin cotton that allows the vest to stay seamless.
This piece has hemp, silk and flax fibers felted in too.
Here you can see a sample product. ן will, of course, accept orders for a similar color and patterned vest as shown, though it must be remembered that each garment is individually unique and as such, no two are or will ever be, exactly the same.
This vest will only be made to order.
That's means I can make this made to your measure.
I need to know your measure of: Bust
Here is a link to a video which explains how to take your right measurements:
By ordering your custom made piece you also have the freedom to play with the color choice and combination…
The buttons I use are made of wood, bone or horn, handcrafted, made by an artist at the Etsy.com community.
So know they are also unique and the stock I keep is varied.
Please mention your button preference too.

Please do read the details of care.
Felted products are not able to be washed in an automatic machine EVER. Nor are they able to be dried using a clothes dryer/tumble dryer. Using these machines will ensure that the felted item will be pulled completely out of shape and then shrunk to around 25% of its original size…. or smaller.
Wash only by hand, using cold water. A soft washing soap is perfect. Natural soaps are great because they are usually extra soft. After rinsing gently and getting all the suds out .. please REMEMBER no wringing at all. Not even gentle squeezing regardless of how tempting it feels to get some of the water out. A towel can be laid over a (cake type) rack and the garment laid flat on the towel and allowed to drip and dry at room temperature. Do shape the item once it is laid on the towel.
Felt will shrink if tumble dried. Down to 10/15% of its original size. This is not repairable.
Felt will lose shape if machine washed. It may be unrecognizable. This is not repairable.
