I mainly weave baby wraps, and I love the merging of engineering (weight bearing needs, wrapping quality preferences) and artistic expression that baby wraps as a product line requires of me. However, we all know that eventually babes become children and our wearing days wind down to a close. When that inevitably happens, I'd be sad to entirely lose the textile-based connections and friendships I'm forming with my customers. Additionally, there are many people in my life outside of babywearing who have asked how they can get a piece of what I make.
And so, I have been experimenting with scarf designs. This cowl/hood is a full wrap width deep and nearly a meter in circumference. I love the generous way it drapes around neck, covering the heart or warming tense shoulders depending on how it is placed.
I think I'll add this to the smaller (more affordable) tube cowls that I have been offering as a regular product line here at 14 Mile. As makers must, I'm already thinking ahead to the holiday season: is this something you'd be interested in gifting to someone special this year? Keep an eye out here and on the 14 Mile Farm Facebook page for listings!
P.S. I'm excessively smitten with the way that my new hair matches the tones that I dyed into Unconditional.
