It’s cozy. It’s rosy. Long, tall and lovely…it’s a bonafide chenille cocoon!
Seriously…this is by far the heaviest weight, most densely tufted chenille robe we have at present, and probably one of the most challenging projects we’ve ever sewn because not even an industrial machine wanted to stitch through parts of this.
This is all vintage-quality heavy cotton, and while the intricate 4-pointed rose motifs do resemble Cabin Crafts, this is of a far more heavyweight fabric than anything CC ever made. The needletufted motifs are exquisitely detailed – the central flower appears to be a lush peony, which is surrounded by a 4-pointed rosebud design, connected by geometric sky blue lines on a cloud white groundcloth.
Because this is such a special robe, we wanted to make it extra feminine – lovely petite eyelet lace is sewn in on the inside of the bottom hemline. You’ll also find a coordinating cotton eyelet on the inner upper facings for an extra touch of old-fashioned country charm.
Because of the impossibility of machine stitching in some sections, there has been hand-sewing done in very small areas. What really adds to the weight of this piece is the dense needletufting on the designs. And we made sure not a single section of ANY motif was discarded – there are little sneaky lil appliques, the largest of which is on the inner wrist 🙂
This really is like a cozy cocoon of chenille, so it is definitely not the right choice if you live in a very warm climate or easily get hot. Otherwise, once you snuggle in this cocoon, you’ll never want to emerge!
