Furry wrist warmers
I am experimenting with new fabrics, probably due to the incredibly low temperatures outside. I used a 100% cotton fur, the kind you usually find your favourite teddy bear made of. It feels wonderfully warm around the wrist and keeps my fingers warm (at least in here).
I'll test-wear them today on my way to work, to see how the fabric behaves after a while. Wearing my items or giving them to friends for good feedback is essential to me. As a customer I'd be disappointed if the fabric of a loved item wears off, bleeds out after washing, or simply leaves threads and fluffs all over the place. So I'm trying to exhaust all possibilities.
