Cobweb wool cape 羊毛網絡斗篷

It's already Feb, we're into spring and weather is not that cold. A slip-in cobweb is light to put on.
I made this cobweb with merino wool, Wenssleydale fleece and mulberry silk.

Laid a thin layer of merino wool over a bubble wrap resist with an inch outside the margin.

Added on mulberry silk and stripes of red merino wool plus some Wensleydale fleece. Sprayed lukewarm soapy water.

Turned it over and wrapped the the margins. Then put on the same wool and stripes over this side and enclosed all around.

Covered with a bubble wrap. Rubbed over it with a piece of bubble wrap in soapy water helped moving around easily.

Then bundled it and rolled for back & forth 100 times.

Unbundled and rubbed it lightly as washing. It's a cobweb, no need to rub long. So it takes less time to finish. Cut the neckline and completed.

A finish look - light and soft.

I first completed it with very loose webs. It fits my size.

I then remade it to smaller webs. I gave it to my colleague's 10-year girl Jas. I told her that this is a chic design of a cobweb cape, that is with some "holes". Hope she likes it and not be sneered as a worn out cape!!

If I had one, I'd never wear it - cos it's such a work of art, I'd want to just stare at it and keep it as pristine as possible! Wonderful! Take care
