It's a Jungle Out There

It's a jungle out there so why not wear a jungle inspired poncho to navigate this urban jungle of ours.  Feel powerful and fashionable at the same time!  

This is my latest design and creation.  It's a pull over nuno felted seamless poncho with a side gusset to make it swing with ease.  It has a high collar that can be smooched down and deep armholes with capped sleeves make it comfy for a one size fit's all.  Of course it can be worn back to front and it's reversible too.

I created my resist to include a side seam gusset to expand one side seam to form a swing shape.

Along with merino wool roving I used new silk, vintage saris, repurposed textiles, yarn, tusseh silk, silk hankies and more to create this garment.  I love all the texture.
