Photo, Debbonnaire Kovacs, Dec. 31, 2014    I have embarked on a years’ long quest to create a full nativity scene whose clothing, blankets, etc. will be from entirely hand spun, hand knitted, woven, or crocheted fiber. Here are Mary and Baby Jesus, surrounded by animals covered in real fur, which I lucked into in Mexico one year. Mary’s robe and veil, and the baby’s blanket, are made from sheep wool. The brown blanket is camel down, and the baby’s swaddling clothes (not visible in this picture) are linen.
