Fiber Artist Knits Aluminum Scales Into Wearable Art

Mamma Bones is a Massachusetts based fiber artist who has been knitting aluminum scales into wearable art for over 3 years. One of the first artists to create scalemail with yarn instead of rings, she hand knits every item and is especially fond of custom orders.

Using knitted yarn allows for a far greater range of motion than traditional chainmail. Warm, soft and flexible, the knit material keeps the metal from touching the skin for the utmost in comfort. Her DragonSwag line is a favorite of cosplayers, YouTubers, burlesque artists and Larpers worldwide. You can find her work on Etsy and Amazon.

looks great! and, what I would use it for, is for attending Mardi Gras/Carnivale in St Louis or Québec City -- too cold or at least iffy weather to wear new orleans/rio de janeiro costumes, but dont want to wear parka neither.
