Felted patchwork Katwise inspired recycled sweatercoats. Similar to other Katwise-inspired pixie/elf/faerie coats found on Etsy but painstakingly needle-felted for increased durability and better fit. Most contain buttery-soft, luxurious recycled cashmere. This one 100% cashmere. Mixed with fleece for visual flare.
This coat has a name: "La Ciudad"

Material: Almost exclusively fine felted cashmere, mixed with fleece. SUPER, super soft.
Notes: This coat has embroidery and sequin work. All of the sparkling sequins that you see are painstakingly hand-sewn on with invisible thread - far more secure than glue and as much as possible, my super-seamstress-ninja-fingers weave the thread within the fibers so that it is both invisible and very secure. I also cut out portions of the paisley pattern, felted them onto the back and shoulders and added sequins to those. The belt ties are also accented with the same pattern, also with sequin embellishments. This is about THE most awesome coat I have ever made.
These are not cheap. It's a big decision. If you're not sure, email me and ask any question (other than price - I explain that in my WTFact section): firstname.lastname@example.org
If a coat is just over the top, I've got some lower-hanging fruit for you - check out my arm warmer, leg-warmer or hat listings as I often make these from material left over from the coats. You can put together a pair of arm-warmers, leg-warmers and a hat for a little less than a coat, but still have a SUPER cute ensemble! I don't always have a complete set, but it's worth a look. 😊
Shipping info in a nutshell: Weight on these coats is generally 4-5 pounds. They are sent in a vacuum-sealed bag inside a box and sent with insurance due to their value. I can't show you the shipping cost without knowing where you're at, so that's why you don't see shipping on the product page itself. Example cost : ~$20 for priority mail with insurance to send to... Portland, USA.
I DO offer local pickup for those in Colorado, just not automagically in checkout. It's done by appointment, and proof of vaccine is required. Shipping charge refunded upon pickup. More on that here, along with a funny video as a reward for reading my more long-winded info: https://www.persephonelove.com/policies/shipping-policy
