Nuno Felted Silk Scarf - Autumn Forest

THis colourful scarf was made by the technique called nuno felting, which is a type of wet felting. Soap, hot water, and agitation bind the fibers together. I used a 100% silk chiffon and silk georgette as a base and decorated with 100% merino wool and silk fibres.

 

The scarf measures approximately 10 x 44" (25cms x 120 cms).

THis is a size of scarf to wear comfortably even in the summer with your light summer cloths.

I used extra fine 18 microns wool, so it is soft and not itchy.

 

Please, handwash in cool water and gentle soap. You may press gently and rinse in cold water. Do not place in washing machine.Dry flat or hang from center and pull to shape.
