All hand worked with no sewing. (see description of nuno felting below)
100% ivory silk chiffon together with 100% merino wool equals pure luxury and elegance. Absolutely soft to the touch, as merino wool is never scratchy or uncomfortable. Feels fantastic on bare shoulders or arms.
Gorgeous white satin ribbon, shiny tendrils of white tencel fiber, and pearly Japanese glass seed beads give this piece an amazing shine.
The double ruffle along the long sides adds to the femininity and romantic look.
Any bride looking for a nice light wrap that is romantic, soft and delicate will adore this piece.
WHAT IS IT? The method of construction is called “nuno felting” where loose wool and fabric are literally forced together manually through a physical process, and is all done by hand. Once the wool migrates through the cloth, the wool is shrunken, and it causes the fabric to wrinkle and become a lovely texture.
Measures 65 x 22 inches (165 x 56 centimeters)
Made in a smoke-free, dog friendly home.
