Baily Ann Rose fashioned this magic somewhere off'a Colfax in Denva, Colorada, falling into winter of 2020. Unique processes utilized in creating this magic contribute to natural variations & asymmetries that remind us of our wild & raucous nature.

Fiber Content (YARN) : 100% Superwash Merino yarn sourced from Fancy Tiger Crafts in Denver, made by Neighborhood Fiber Co. The dye color is "Basquiat" (Baily Rose loves Jean-Michel).
FUR POM: Colorada Coyote scrap fur from a commissioned coyote design. Coyote is an invasive species on ranches in Colorado, with a lot of pelts going to waste. Utilizing coyote in this design is a zero waste, circular, regenerative practice. The pelt was given to Baily from a rancher who usually throws the pelts away.
Design Details :
- Pockets in the hem to hide gems in, when not folded up.
- Zero waste design
(ha, a joke 'cos all knitting is a zero waste pattern, 'cos it only uses as much yarn is needed to knit the design... but for reals, it is zero waste)
- Compostable Design : All elements are compostable. After wearing a lifetime or two, return back to the earth, to let decompose & biodegrade.
Transparency on average time taken to make this be.annie toque :

Basquiat & Coyote be.annie
Hand wash gently with lukewarm water with your favorite organic as fuck detergent
Lay flat to dry on a sweater rack, or a cookie rack works peachy keen, or anything really, that allows air to pass through the garment
Be gentle handling the pom when wet. Let completely dry, and then shake out the pom to fluff it back up, while holding the base of the pom from inside the be.annie. Pretend the pom is a coyote that just took a bath in the river, and shake it like a coyote would shake itself after exiting the wild water. ;)
