Online PR News – 23-October-2012 – Laura, Ohio – Rosy Toes Designs LLC in association with The Artisan Group, will participate in the official celebrity gift lounge in honor of The 46th Annual CMA Awards on October 29 - November 1, 2012 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Rosy Toes Designs of Laura, Ohio, will gift their felted alpaca skully and slouchy beanies to members of the press and media backstage at the CMA Awards. The beanies are luxuriously soft, stylish and eco friendly. They are available in solid colors, as will as embellished.

Rosy Toes Designs creates practical luxury you love to touch. Their felted alpaca beanies are no exception. Each hat is knit and felted from the softest baby alpaca, creating a beanie that is not only soft, but durable and warm without being bulky. The beanies were then embellished with daisies, hibiscus flowers or flying hearts, using wool roving and a needle felting techniques. Lucy says of the beanies, "I wanted to design a hat that was warm, yet lightweight enough to be worn 3 seasons of the year. I also wanted it to be stylish and comfortable. Alpaca is super soft, so I knew it would make a wonderful hat. One comfortable enough to wear all day long. I believe I succeeded and couldn't be happier!"

Felted alpaca is eco-friendly, durable, soft, thermal, keeps you warm when wet, warm without being bulky, and is hypoallergenic. It is a wonderful natural fiber choice for all your cool weather needs.

At Rosy Toes Designs, fiber artist and designer, Lucy Chapman, creates eco friendly, luxurious and functional fiber art. Her practical art is a synthesis of new designs and ancient techniques. You will find messenger bags, Cuddle-up sweater blankets and fashion accessories handcrafted from felted wool and alpaca, recycled silk, and repurposed lambswool and cashmere sweaters. Her inspiration comes from the colors of the natural world and from the joy of playing with fiber.

Her work has traveled around the world on photographic expeditions, been received by celebrities such as Ryan Gosling and Genevieve Gorder , and been included in gift bags at the GBK Gift Lounges for the Primetime Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards.
