What to do with Hand Dyed Wool Fabric?

My first experiments with ponchos
I am wondering if I need to add a button at the wrist.
My goal is to make the colors blend like watercolor paintings.

I've been hand dying jacket weight wool fabrics for a few years now.  I use them in my needle felted appliqued quilts.  But I've had the urge to expand into ponchos and other simple jacket shapes.  Maybe there also needs to be an appliqued animal or two.
