Shop Announcement:

Hello and welcome to my Folksy shop! I've been making for others since 2013 and if you'd like to see what my customers have said about my work since then (before I opened up here on Folksy), you can read more than 1,000 reviews on my web site: (click 'Reviews' on the bar at the top of the page).

In addition to the UK, I'm happy to ship most items to Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia - just message me for a shipping quotation.

Many of the pieces I make are made to order and the shipping time is a 'worse case scenario' estimate - I will often make and send items quicker than indicated, although things do sometimes slow down at busy times. If you want something urgently, just message me and I'll confirm if I can meet your deadline. Some items over £30 are posted via the 'signed for' Royal Mail service automatically, but if you'd like to make sure you have this on your order, just message me.

I'm more active on Instagram than anywhere else: but you can always find me online elsewhere: my blog is here:, my facebook page here: and my Pinterest addiction is evidenced here:

This capelet is 'The Hug' - super soft and warm mini cape or shoulder cosy

Love this


I've hand knit The Hug in Rowan's Kidsilk Haze Trio, which comprises three strands of Rowan's ever popular Kidsilk Haze spun together to make a beautiful soft and lightweight yarn. Trio offers all the softness of Kidsilk Haze in a heavier yet lightweight yarn with an amazingly soft handle and pretty mohair halo.

The colour of this piece is 'Hawthorn', which is a pinky red - very pretty. You can see the flat shape of the little cape in the last picture of the set. I've created shaping around the shoulders so that it sits happily over your arms but still gives you room to move them. The form that the cape if modelled on here has a 38 inch (96.5cm bust) - to give you some idea of fit.


Depth from neck to bottom edge measured through the centre is 17 inches or 43cm
Circumference around the neck is 21 inches 54cm
Circumference around the bottom hem is 48 inches 120cm

The shipping costs shown for this item include the 'signed for' service in the UK and a tracking service for International orders. Please note that I do automatically refund postal cost overages for international items.


When you need a big warm hug, this little cape or shoulder cosy will give you one! Looks great worn over crew or polo neck top or jumper, or maybe a nice white shirt.
