@jezzball submitted: Do you know what this could be? Looked like some kind of cocoon on an otherwise bare bush. Quite large (~3-4” long?) In Ontario.
Ohohohoho bug hammock. There’s a friend in there! A big friend. It’s a cecropia moth cocoon.
An absolute unit.
Can you believe these are real and we get the share the planet with them? I can’t.

4/16 Stock drop and News
Oarfish scarves have been restocked!
Get yourself some deep-sea fashion!
Custom Moth cape orders are coming back April 16, with a brand new design!
As before, three order slots will be available. Choose from Luna Moth, Cecropia Moth, Pink Bullseye Moth, and our newest: Rosy Maple Moth!
A warm fleece cape with a thick fur collar and details in fluffy pink minky fabric, this design was commissioned last month and is now available to order!
Emperor Gum Moth Capes will NOT be available in this update.
I have been having problems with my faux fur supply chain, and still have not found a solution. I tentatively hope to offer them again by early May, and will keep you up to date on any changes to the cape design.
Looking into the future:
I'm working on designs for more capes with one cryptic design lurking in the shadows, almost ready to go (also trapped by the faux fur problems). I'm also looking into logistics of offering a range of standard sizes! At the moment any sizing changes have to be custom-ordered. The original cape was sized to my scale, and I am quite small. I would like to offer a large size and possibly a child size version in the future.

@theonewiththesoks submitted: Here’s a fun game of Where’s Waldo for you! Last year I found this gem of what I believe to be a cecropia moth caterpillar outside my local Chili’s in WV (western border by Ohio) and I plan to look for more this summer! If it’s feasible I’d love to keep one and raise it to adulthood, I raised monarch butterflies as a child and I loved it!
Yep, looks like a cecropia! Very chunky...and sneaky. I think it’s feasible to raise any caterpillar as long as you look up their requirements! If you do, feel free to share their journey :))
