Teapot Cardigan in Organic Butterfly Crochet
An heirloom piece to be sure, this cardigan was crocheted entirely by hand piece by piece in a quilt-like fashion. Naturally dyed in a moody rainbow of colors using sappanwood, madder, cherry plums, iron, and fermented indigo.
With three-quarter sleeves, and a slightly cropped fit, the Teapot adds an antique flare to any outfit.
Featuring corozo nut accent buttons, naturally dyed in matching colors.
