Wraps: Cocoons & Shruggies, Quexquemetl Ponchos, Capes, & QQ Ruanas

Weaves By Cappa: Shruggie 4 similar styles,
w/2 currently on hand:

Shruggie Cocoons:   Shruggies are different proportions than full size cocoons. Smaller, shorter without a heavier drape of fabric in back, but wider to cover arms. Made with 100% cotton nub & flake yarns. Some may also include glossy rayon, and sparkle or ribbon.
This style is open in front with lapels and sleeves.
General length is to hip and sleeves are at elbows. They are meant to be worn loose and casual, a more economical, lighter wrap with shorter fringe. Sizes are flexible and a "S" would be loose on a petite person, and fit more like a sweater on a larger person. "M" would be much looser all around. ("L" customized. All measurements exclude fringe.)

Below: Shruggie Cocoon in creams, pale beige and cocoa, with strands of pastel aqua, violet, and peach on the textured border and collar. Size S. $140. Edges have open Leno-Lace and are fringed.

Panels   WeavesByCappa: Door Panels.
           "Whelk Panel"
 Think outside the box, or rectangle, for weavings can be draped so many ways - on sofas, windows, tables, doorways, or you. As a home accessory, they texturize and color a room. Then pick it up and wear it. Made with 100% cotton nub & flake yarns. May also include glossy rayon, raw silk or linen, sparkle or beads, and Leno-Lace imagery. Most have Leno-Lace edges, with fringe. Surface is predominantly tabby pattern (basic weave) but may include additional textured patterns. Some may be hemmed for a rod.


WeavesByCappa: Panel -Blue Branch
Blue Branch Panel.
Periwinkle blues with subtle warp dyes of violet and green. Surface applique and pattern weaves. Top is hemmed for a rod.As with the Whelk Panel, they become almost translucent when hung in the light. Think coral or tree branches. Cottons, 26"x78", $175.

Handwoven Sachets

Sachets are woven in various colored cottons in a shape much like a 4-cornered hat. Inside is a pad of raw wool, which I've sprayed with scent. To rejuvenate , just add your own scented oil or perfume, or replace with a pouch of potpourri.

Woven sachets make colorful Christmas ornaments. After the season, use in closets or drawers, or hang on your door for a pleasant scent when passing through.
      Check back during the holiday season.

Triangle WeavingWeavesByCappa: Tri-Scarf

Tri-Weaves are finger-picked on various-sized frame looms, incorporating some of the techniques I use on the harness loom, such as the open leno-lace. Smaller frames (4 ft.) give smaller scarves (see scarf pics below) or larger frames (7 ft.) give Shawls/Throws. Similar to a giant potholder, this technique allows a mix of shades, beads, ribbons, rovings, bulky textures and various fibers,including some handspun wool from my sheep. They are vibrant, textured accents around neck or waist.
* As scarves, sample shown is a triangle, approx. 48" at widest edge.  
* As throws, they are sumptuous fuzzy body covers, about 6.5 ft. at widest edge.

At right: Blue and magenta Tri-Shawl, or Throw, was woven with varied colors and fibers, that warmly covers with soft, textured yarns. $185

See gallery of Tri-Weaves.
Also, workshops are offered in this fun technique...

Circle & Flat Scarves:

   Circles are approximately 6 ft. long, joined at end points to make a large circle that can be looped 'round and 'round. Or unlace the ends for a standard, straight scarf. See wearable options below.
   Light-weight, wildly textured novelty yarns or smoother cottons. - Ask about school colors!
