Felted patchwork Katwise inspired recycled sweatercoats. Similar to other Katwise-inspired pixie/elf/faerie coats found on Etsy but painstakingly machine-needle-felted for increased durability and better fit. Most contain buttery-soft, luxurious recycled cashmere. Some are 100% cashmere. Mixed with fleece for visual flare.
This one is part of my newer "pixie bottom" coat designs - even the "skirt" section is felted for supreme durability. Also hidden inside the hood brim are 4 felted layers.. so instead of 2-ply cashmere, think 8-ply... which I felted the heck out of to super-compress them, so the hood brim has a lot more structure than my earlier works, but without adding too much bulk. The result is a hood that has a better "hang" and holds a shape better when worn up over the head. Also, even the skirt pieces on this one have loads of sparkling sequins. ✨

Weight: ~149 pounds
This, so far, is one of the best coats I've made yet and is more durable and even better than my earlier works. Machine-needle-felted coats also take a lot more time, which is why the price is higher. This was about a week's worth of work, not factoring in the cost of materials (which alone are ~$100.00). The cashmere is just more expensive. It is SO worth it though. High quality materials enable high quality finished works.😍
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 4-6 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 : ~$15-20 for priority mail with insurance to send to... Portland, USA. I pay the insurance cost. Am I not generous?? 😎
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.
