This is a beautifully coloured and individual scarf which will draw many admiring glances. Both wool and silk are extremely comfortable materials.. they will keep you warm when you need it without causing overheating. Merino is very soft and not itchy, comfortable to wear next to the skin.
What is nuno?
Nuno felting is a technique in which you use physical force to push wool fibres through a fabric and then felt them together.. it gives a very distinctive texture. I have included more info on HOW nuno felting is done at the bottom if you are interested :)
Silk chiffon is a matte fabric so there is no shine on this side, the firstar and silk on the other side give the scarf all the sparkle it needs.
Part way through felting I shaped the ends and strategically added a few decorative holes, the edges of which are all smoothly finished.

Easy to care for.
Wool felt does not require wash very often as it is naturally dirt & odour repellant. If it does need a wash - a gentle handwash in lukewarm water with woolwash/shampoo, rinse thoroughly at same temperature. Squeeze (dont wring) excess water out, blot between 2 towels to remove even more water. DRY NATURALLY. Do not use washing machine/tumble drier. Care leaflet will be included.
Process nuno felting this scarf.
I started out with a piece of teal coloured silk chiffon, onto this I layed my merino, tussah silk & firestar blend in beautiful blues and just a touch of brown. Next I came my surface embellishment; some handspun yarn plied with a metalic thread, throwsters waste silk, silk caps and silk threads. I left some areas with no fibre over or just a very tiny amount - this allows the chiffon to show through when the piece is felted.
Then came the lengthy / strenuous process of rolling the piece hundreds & hundreds of times until the fibres had crept through to the other side of the silk chiffon (enabling them to hold on & become one cohesive piece of fabric). Now the fun begins.. the addition of heat, vigorous rolling and throwing the scarf against a hard surface.
After the heat and pummeling the wool has felted beautifully, and all the tiny fibres which crept through the silk chiffon have contracted and caused the wonderful bobbly nuno texture.
During felting the piece shrinks by 50% or even more.
