Each Monkey Unicorn sweatshirt is truly one of a kind. They each have a different combination of fabrics from my beloved vintage fabric collection. I buy all the fabrics for the appliques at the Ujamaa Grandma's annual fabric sale here in Calgary. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, most fabrics are $1/metre and all proceeds go to charity. I silk-screen my weird drawing of this imaginary creature (a kid at a festival referred to it as a "Monkey Unicorn," so that's what I call it) onto a colourful square of fabric, then sew that onto a fun patterned fabric, and then sew them onto the sweater. They're weird and colourful and I love them!
Printed on a MEDIUM Black Unisex Bamboo/Cotton Fleece Sweatshirt. (70% Rayon from Bamboo, 30% Organic Cotton). Seriously, the softest coziest sweatshirt I've ever worn. The appliqués are of unknown fabric contents and have raw edges.
This is a Unisex fit sweatshirt, listed in Unisex sizes.
These sweaters do require special care. For best results, hand wash in cold water and then hang to dry. Whatever you do, DO NOT PUT IN THE DRYER! I don't know the fabric content of the appliqués, so it's possible that they'll shrink up drastically and be ruined. I use water-based inks for all my prints, which are great because they sink right into the fabric instead of sitting on the surface. So they won't crack or fade, but get softer with each wash until you can't even feel them.
