Eric is the very first of our Canuck neighbors to the north to own a Pussy Cap and is modeling it here for us in front of the Rideau Canal near his home in Ottawa.
Appropriately enough, Eric's cap is made with three beautiful strands of Koigu, a Canadian Merino wool that's handpainted by Maie & Taiu Landra of Ontario, Canada.
The use of three strands of handpainted Koigu Merino is one of my signature styles for Pussy Caps and you can find several of them on the catalog pages in various beautiful color schemes.
Here's Jodi in one of my favorite Pussy Caps crocheted from a handspun, natural white angora that's almost otherworldy for how soft and beautiful it is.
To my eyes, Jodi is even more beautiful now than she was twenty years ago when we first started working together. Busy mom, gifted photographer and someone who is constantly seeking her own truths, Jodi has grown into her natural physical beauty with grace and quiet confidence.
This shot of Steve in his Pussy Cap is from a series of images we did in downtown Los Angeles. I brought the cap along as a prop but Steve looked so good in it and liked it so much that I let him give it a permanent home on his head. For what I put him through that day he totally earned it!
Anne above and Michelle to your left are showing off their custom Pussy Caps that Michelle's mom DeAnn gave them as gifts. DeAnn had already purchased several caps and wanted to give the girl's something special, so she had the girls tell me what they wanted and this is what I came up with.
Michelle's last name is Rowan and her cap is made completely of an alpaca/wool blend from the famous Rowan yarnmakers of England. When DeAnn ordered the caps the only specification she had was the Michelle's cap be entirely out of Rowan yarn. Michelle chose the colors - and look how amazingly they reflect the color of her beautiful eyes.
My sweethearts Paige & John in their Pussy Caps that I photographed them in during an outing to Mt. Tam north of their home in Mill Valley, California.
...but rather a Tongan ceremonial headpiece that I photographed this gal in when she graduated from Hollywood High School.
Great picture from Berlin in front of Checkpoint Charley.
Darling little Lily in the custom Pussy Cap that her mom asked me to make using the colors of lilies.

Hudson and Corey were out here in Los Angeles for a visit awhile back and Hud and I got together to do some pictures. Here's one of him from the shoot in his Pussy Cap looking a little more serious than in the picture above.
And as if Lily wasn't cute enough in her Pussy Cap, how about Sweetie in his? Well, it's not actually his, but his mom was having a little bit of trouble getting her whole head in the picture as you can see.
What could be more perfect for the arctic cold of Finland than a Pussy Cap?
According to Pekka who lives in Finland, not much. Here he's sitting on the ice in his Wave Pussy Cap near his home in Helsinki.
And yes, Pekka is the very first Fin to own a Pussy Cap. This one's made from pure handspun llama in its natural tan and reddish brown colors.
Lookin' good Pekka.
Lookin' really good!
On a recent visit to New York I met up with my friend Neil and his Westie Molly for a walk in Central Park and snagged a couple of pictures of them by the lake. Neil has on his new Pussy Cap that's made from pure Peruvian baby alpaca.
While in New York my friend Russ took this picture of me in my cashmere Pussy Cap at Rockefeller Center. The tulips behind me say it's spring but this California boy was still freezing his butt off.
So Sweetie, who's a Havanese puppy and total fashionista said he'd pose for the darn picture so that this gorgeous angora, cashmere, silk and mohair Pussy Cap would be properly represented.
Buds Robear and Troy from Utah in their Pussy Caps, both of which are made of Peruvian yarns blended from angora fur and wool. Perfect for those cold Rocky Mountain winters!
Richard is one of my longest and bestest friends and this Kodak moment of us at a party in Hollywood shows off his Qiviut Pussy Cap that I made especially for him. One of the world's rarest, softest and most beautiful animal fibers, Qiviut works up into what I consider to be the ultimate Pussy Cap.
Jan's friend Craig gave her this Pussy Cap as a gift and as I sat here looking at the pictures I realized that I couldn't have chosen a more perfect one for her.
Everyone should have a friend as discerning and capable as Craig when it comes to picking out their Pussy Caps. Nice work guys! And Jan, you're radiantly beautiful. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
Jan and Craig in Craig's backyard in Indiana showing us how well Pussy Caps work pulled back on the head as opposed to down low to the eyes and below the ears.
Woody is the first person in the San Francisco Bay area to own a Pussy Cap and is modeling it for us in this self-portrait. It's made from a beautiful blend of alpaca & wool in my signature "Woody Blue" color that was named in his honor.
Jodi and Auri in angora Pussy Caps and merino Pussy Tails. They first met 21 years ago when Auri was 3.
These are pictures of my friends, family and clients in their Pussy Caps. New ones are arriving all the time and they're presented in these galleries in grab-bag order. A big thanks to everyone who's sent pictures to me - I love having them here to share.
These are definitely Pussy Caps though and they're both made from an angora fur & wool yarn that was imported from Peru`
My darling Heather photographed by her husband Joe while hiking in the Canyonlands of Southern Utah.
The Pussy Cap she's wearing is crafted from one of my all-time favorite yarns that's blended from qiviut, alpaca & merino.
Recently I performed Heather & Joe's wedding ceremony in the snow above Redford's Sundance Resort in Utah. They didn't have their Pussy Caps on for the ceremony but I sure did!
Madoka sent me this picture of her in her luxurious new Pussy Cap made from Samoyed fur and alpaca. She's the first person in Japan to own and wear a Pussy Cap!
"Dear Mr. Clark
Long time no see. I’m Madoka. Japan is getting very cold. Pussy Cap is also big activity. I have traveled to Miyajima this weekend with Pussy Cap. I attach the photograph of that time. Pussy Cap is very warm and feeling of wearing is the best.
My dad in one of his Pussy Caps posing with his best friend Baxter.
Dad wears his Pussy Caps night and day during the colder months of the year, otherwise he's in a cowboy hat. He has a shaved head so you better believe he's excited about having found a way to keep it warm finally.
That's handspun cashmere & merino coupled with alpaca for a really luxurious and ultra-warm Pussy Cap.
I've known Felicitas since she was a little girl and here she is all grown up in her hometown of Graz, Austria wearing her fabulously soft Pussy Cap that I crocheted from baby alpaca yarns.
Debbie from San Francisco shows off her luxurious Nekker, worn here as a headband.
