Inspired by Lyra Belaqua from The Golden Compass.

“The hood’s opening is thrummed with soft hand-dyed Merino combed top; the fabric’s stockinette curl rolls the thrummed interior out. Tucked inside the hood’s lush red interior—nestled in just the spot to whisper advice and encouragement into one’s ear—crouches the hood’s secret cargo, a duplicate-stitch Pantalaimon in mouse form.”
