Designed by Penny Lacroix
These fleecy textured pillows are woven with a combination of Ode and Array, bringing out the unique qualities of each. When the fabric is washed after weaving, the wool yarn will full (shrink slightly) which highlights the extra plush hand of the alpaca. Four shades of Array are used throughout the design to add a soft dimensional effect. Order a kit.
