A little about “nuno felting”…..
If you haven’t seen something nuno felted before, you’re in for a treat! Photographs don’t capture how lightweight it is, but it is as light as a feather. I make mine very thin, and wispy so that you can see though it in places, and so that it drapes nicely.
The process involves laying out fabric, then spreading thin layers of un-spun wool on top. It is then manually manipulated anywhere from 1-3 hours until the wool migrates literally THROUGH the fabric and adheres to it. It is then shrunk so that the wool shrinks and scrunches up the fabric along with it. The random textures and bumps make the surface a lovely piece of wearable art.
I understand that this is a pricey purchase and that you want to be sure before you buy. Extra photos can be found here:
