Wet felted from soft merino & silk fibre in teals, greens, midnight blues & darkest brown. There is a generous amount of firestar blended in adding sparkle and light to the design. You could wear this ANYwhere & look fabulous!

There is approx 90% merino fibre to 10% tussah silk fibre (in midnight blue).

The colours of this gorgeous shawl remind me of Van Gough`s 'Starry Night' painting (which I ADORE) with silken swirls and sparkling stars. The uneven, organically shaped edges echo the shapes in the painting...


I have created a hammered copper wire pin to go with this shawl. Inspired by celtic spirals. There is a point at the end of the pin, it will ease through between the fibres if you go gently rather than forcing through... When removed a gentle massage of the area should close the hole as the fibres merely moved aside (if you force hard/fast & break the fibres the hole may not close).

This is more substantial than cobweb felt and has none of its characteristic holes, but it is still soft, light and reasonably lacy; it drapes well.

Whilst this is lightweight & easy to wear it is also wonderfully warm and cosy. A generous shawl/wrap with room to move around, throw it over your shoulder etc. I wear mine pinned at the shoulder - it looks like a very stylish form of poncho.

Measurements:
155cm 61")at the widest point
45cm (17.5") deep

Personal preference must decide which is the right side & which way is up.

Handmade copper pin included.


Care instructions will be included. Here are the basics:
Due to the nature of woolfelt it rarely requires washing. If it does simply give it a gentle handwash in cool water with a little woolwash or hair shampoo in it. Rinse by hand at the same temperature. Carefully squeeze excess water out, press between a couple of towels then leave to dry naturally. Although this is a big piece of felt, due to its lightweight it dries pretty quickly.

*** POSTAGE -PLEASE READ ***
I now send all packages valued over £50 GBP via Airsure (where possible) - this service is faster, tracked, fully insured and has delivery confirmation. Airsure is not available for all parts of the world, if you are in one of the countries that I can not use Airsure for I will send via Recorded Delivery, which will also be insured and require a signature upon receipt. I do not profit from postage at all.
