S ~ Sun Rays sweater
This adorable, puffy sleeved sweater has been hand painted with a sun motif inspired by victorian maps and wood blocks. It was then dyed in a strong bath of marigolds and turmeric and left to soak for two days. Turmeric is medicinal when absorbed into the body as it is rich in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. This rich color may bleed slightly before it's first wash so wearing white underneath or overtop the sweater is not recommended.
20" wide x 22" long. extra large sleeves taper to an elastic cuff on the arms.
This clothing item has been thrifted, (and cleaned, scoured, hand dyed and/or painted, and washed again) to eliminate support of new textiles production. Imperfections and color variations exist, each item is one of a kind and hand dyed in Colorado, USA. Inks are handmade, plant and mineral based, ethically grown and sourced, chemical & plastic free, safe for skin, and biodegradable.
Sizing: Not all “Larges” are the same exact size, as manufacturers of items vary. Measure a shirt you own as a reference for finding the best size for your comfort. If you don't have a measuring device, a standard piece of printing paper can work as a rough guide, as they are 8.5” x 11”.
