Step 1 Supplies and getting started


I chose a soft heavy weight Alpaca Wool. You can use any weight you like, as long as it’s felted. It is important the fabric has a nice drape and is soft since it will be around your face and neck.

You will need:

60"W x 54"W heavy felted wool
*I used a soft felted wool in charcoal color
*Please note that the fabric must be felted so there is minimal raveling. This is important since the edges of the wrap are not turned over, just top stitched and pinked.

Pinking shears *optional
Tape measure
Marking chalk
Fabric weights (or pins to hold fabric in place while cutting)
Steam iron + ironing board
Tailor’s ham to flatten out hood seams
And of course sewing machine + med. weight needle, thread, and sharp scissors…

Once you have all of your supplies, you want to start with folding your fabric in half, lengthwise. Get a feel for where the fabric sort of wants to fold. The edges do not need to be perfectly lined up, but do try to get the fold to be even.
