christmas sweater

a sweater that i designed for worn fashion journal with the christmas spirit in mind.  

"it’s the ‘fallen angel’ sweater, made from black vicuna wool. vicuna is most luxurious, softest and most expensive fiber (cashmere who?) because you can only shear the animal once every three years.  the sweater has a high turtleneck cowl front for the illusion of being demure while the back of the sweater is open.  wide ribbing at the cuffs and waist, and lace batwing sleeves.  the lace has been handmade by the nimble little fingers of tiny little children.”

  1. I totally agree with this comment. Vicuna is the epitome of luxury wool. There is also an online retailer to buy vicuna sweaters : www.ibanez1864.com
