Lady Brett Ashley

Lady Brett Ashley

This style is one of my favorites that I have made for over 20 years, though I don't do a lot of them.  I do wear them myself for just going out and about to cover the hair or just add a lift to my step.   It is stitched from a 5 mm wide "paglina" braid from Switzerland.   There are strand of matte and strand of somewhat shiny fibers mixed - of the same color.   It adds a little snaz to it.   Edged in another Swiss braid that is a tweed of neutral tones with black dominant.
