Rajan, one of W.O.L.F.'s most beloved residents crossed the rainbow bridge in 2018. Animal advocate and lover of wolves, Kris Paige, created a beautiful shawl to memorialize his soulful spirit. As part of the handspun process, the yarn starts with brushings. They are washed twice, dried, then carded, spun, plied, then washed again. The weaving takes several days then the ends are hand stitched, and the entire shawl is washed again.
Artist statement: "Rajan, as many of us who had the honor of meeting him, shared a powerful personality. I had a couple of designs in mind for this shawl, however, he "managed" to reject both. This design came from looking at pictures of him over the years, and trying to represent the that extraordinary personality. His strong pack leader side is shown in the dark borders. His sweet nature is appropriately represented by the creamy center. Over 1200 yards of hand spun fur and material make this 7 ounce shawl guaranteed to protect you from cool breezes. If, perchance, while wearing it, you feel a tiny lick on your ear, just smile."
