nuno felted arm warmers -autumn- 1
Autumn leaves under frozen souls,
Hungry hands turning soft and old,
My hero cried as we stood out there in the cold,
Like these autumn leaves I don't have nothing to hold.
Handsome smile, wearing handsome shoes,
Too young to say, though I swear he knew,
And I hear him singing while he sits there in his chair,
While these autumn leaves float around everywhere.
And I look at you, and I see me,
Making noise so restlessly,
But now it's quiet and I can hear you sing,
'My little fish don't cry, my little fish don't cry.'...
~ Autumn by Paolo Nutini
Keep it warm and soft however stylish during the cold months!
This pair of arm warmers is made of merino wool from Portugal (22 mic) in a warm, chestnut brown colour. In the arm warmers are also incorporated pieces of synthetic fabric with loose weave in orange-red colour, extra fine Australian merino wool in orange and Karakul-Merino wool in a natural light brown colour in order to create a rich palette of tones and unequal shapes and forms.
They are felted all together using the wet felting technique and the result that you see in the photos is called nuno-felting. The distinction between this pair of nuno-felted arm warmers and a simple wet-felted item is that it contains also a different material except from wool, i.e. cotton and synthetic fabric. Their edges are uneven from both sides and they can be worn till the middle part of the hand as half gloves. On the other edge they reach the elbow.
They measure approximately 30 cm (11.8in) length and 9.5 cm (3.7 in) width (flat). They fit most wrists however they can be reshaped (smaller or larger) with the use of warm water.
