Part of my handmade felted wool/cashmere/fleece line - but LEG WARMERS! The machine felting process makes this softer and warmer (and takes a lot longer to make, which accounts for the cost you see).
They are machine-embroidered, and then the sequins are all hand-sewn on with invisible thread woven through the fibers to conceal it. FAR superior than cheaping out and gluing things on, and you have to look really, really really closely to see the thread. (Don't try this at home, your eyeballs will hate you for the strain. My eyeballs hate me for using nylon filament invisible thread because it is... well... mostly invisible!😂)
This pair has a fleece liner with wool felted on the outside, for warmth.
Closure: zipper - best worn OVER pants/leggings
Top circumference: ~18 inches
Length: ~15.5 inches
Bottom circumference: ~16 inches
Model notes: widest part of calf = ~approx 15 inches
I modeled these and I have, um... two different sized legs.😜 I had ankle surgery and lost a lot of muscle on my right leg from being non-weight bearing for about 3 months (I call it my peg-leg... yarr!) so the measurement is from my left leg. Note that most calves have a wide part and then are a bit more slender up by the knee. There's no way to *perfectly* measure these but suffice that all of my cashmere leg-warmers do have some stretch. If you're not sure, just email me.
These were made from materials left over from Castor and Pollux.
I do have several hats which also feature the Little Dipper Fleece pattern used for these, if you look here. There are arm-warmers that match these as well. For folks who can't afford one of my full coats, this is another way you can piece together a warm, fun ensemble. I avoid non-living wages, but you can still have a new treasure - it's a win-win for both of us.💙
