Warm and Cozy.

There's something so delightful and comforting in the softness, wamth and coziness of wool...

Wool- of all kinds- is a favorite material of mine to wear, work and decorate with! Where I can add wool, plaids, tweed, yarn, etc. I do.

My eco- chic scarves/necklaces were published in Green Craft Magazine years ago, and last year I started making just a few for my Etsy shop- let me now introduce you the new ones I created this year.

I chose to go brown and gray, two of my favorite colors to wear over the cold months, and so chic!

Available here.

They are made with the softest wool yarns, and embellished with handmade flowers, finished off with lots of love and patience beads sewn in place by hand...

They can be sported in different ways, just as your mood of the day suggests!

I also finished one more wool wreath, making it different from the ones in gray by adding a flower instead of a wooden heart.

... And lots of warm hearts!
These can be hung on door knobs or windows, Christmas tree, a lamp, mirror etc. to add a cozy feel, and can also be used as small thought or to top off a special gift for a dear one, to make them giddy with anticipation just seeing the package!

All available in my Etsy handmade, thewhitebench.etsy.com, here.
