Blue Boa is a neckpiece with a “clasp” built into its interlinking units so that it can adjust to various lengths and adapt to different body sizes by adding or subtracting these interlinking units.  It is part of the Tendril collection of body and home accessories made from 100% wool felt die cut units which are hand assembled.  Wool is a renewable resource and the web left after cutting, including the discs from the holes are also used in the collection with no wastage of material.
