Rhapsody Collar

Something warm and lustrous, light-weight and wild, to warm the heart on a winter day.  Turn down the heat… let wool and silk warm you.

Pure white silk/merino/cashmere fibers in the mid-layer extended out at the sides to create gossamer fringes.  Lots of silk fabrics, curly wool locks,

dots and embedded/extended hand spun yarns offer shimmer, texture and movement.  With many thanks to a patient patron whose creative

sensibilities guided my choices — via emails — in creating this lovely piece that turned out to be a challenging and instructive studio experience

and a prelude to a “Rhapsody” scarf.
