Snowy Owl poncho/shawl
If you work with Owl as a guide then this cloak may be perfect for you.
Each one of these shawls was conceived in small rituals during either the new or full moon, and carries a ceremonial essence to it.
This particular one has been sewn up the side to create an asymmetrical look and carries more of a poncho feel.
These shawls are in essence medicine pieces and while they were being woven I was entering deep into prayer and journey to communicate with the animals and beings whose essence I wanted to weave into these prayer shawls.
This Snowy Owl cloak holds the wild nature of the owl, carrying both the shadow of their wise nature and the beauty of their wildness.
Owls to me carry something ancient, slow and wise that we often find lacking in our lives as modern day folks, and it was this essence that I wanted to conjure in my weaving.
It is within this meeting between wildness and friendship that I wanted to create shawls that would hold the medicine of relationship with them that is best served in the wearing of a cloak or shawl rather than a pelt!
There is also something of magic in this cloak, and as I was working on these pieces I felt called to add in bits of golden threads, as well as shimmery ones to represent the magical side of their nature.
This Owl cloak was made using organic cotton yarn at its base, and have added in merino wool and other textile and art yarns that match the colour of the snowy owl.
*I tend to only work with cotton and merino wool yarns as I find them softer and less itchy to wear.*
The best/easiest thing to do if you are unsure about the size is to take your favourite shawl and measure it for comparison.
