WILD WOMAN COLLECTION
Have you seen the cartoon "Song of the Sea"?
The first time I watched it with my whole family I saw tears in my 6-year-old son's eyes. It was the first time I saw him moved which made me equally moved, if not more.
I was already familiar with the legend of the Selkies but it was because of my son's tiny tears falling down his cheeks that I decided to create a wrap with the Selkies.
The story of the Selkies is a celtic legend telling about a woman-seal, who decides to come ashore leaving the life she knew and starting a family with a male human.
When I wrote to the talented Joanna Izydor about my idea, she instantly loved it.
A moment later I received a sketch with a pattern that right away stole my heart and the hearts of my family.
I felt as if Joanna was reading my thoughts as the pattern was a perfect reflection of what I had in mind!
Joanna, my soulmate, you are the best!
As always, we used the yarns of the best quality to make this piece of art happen.
Tsumugi silk which is as soft as a sponge, with beautiful colourful nubs, adds charm to the sling and makes it hold the load so well.
Vegan and tussah silk gives it an exclusive touch.
Your collection will simply be incomplete without this beauty!
The wrap is 265 gsm. One side is soft and cosy which makes it ideal for a baby but due to a palpable structure on the other side it is strong enough and has a good enough grip for a toddler.
After washing the sling gains a 3D structure, which can be even seen in the photos.
Hurry up as there are only 5 of them!
Part of the proceeds from the sales of the wraps will go towards adoption of TWO seals from Seal Rescue Island in County Wexford!!!
We highly encourage you to support seal rescue centres in your area. Some of them might be Selkies, you never know.
