Fabulous, luxurious and quirky - this is a hand nuno felted shawl / scarf made from black pure silk dotty chiffon with pieces of vintage silk scarves in pink,red and plum tones felted over the top. I have used the lightest touch of wool fibre in a cashmere / merino mix which means the scarf is as light as a feather but incredibly soft, warm and lovely to wear.

The two sides have quite different appearances so you get two scarves for the price of one really ...... The first side is a vibrant mosaic of vintage silk prints edged and joined with the black felted wool. The silk bubbles up and is a lovely ruched crumpled texture with some raw edges protruding - all adding to the look and quirky interest. Some of the silks are satiny, whilst others are more of a matt finish and some pieces are top stitched with large cross-stitches. Contrast in all aspects and definately one of a kind. This side is glamourous enough for evening - would look great with a little black dress and screams individuality!

The second side predominantly black with some splashes of scarlet and deep red merino wool. The silk prints are visible through a veil of the black dotty chiffon giving a much less contrasting darker look.

This wrap would be fantastic gift - so versatile perfect for a special occasion or equally at home scrunched around your neck for everyday wear. There is nothing quite like wearing nuno felted silk for ultimate luxurious winter warmth.

The wrap is handmade using finest quality materials
- black cashmere & merino wool fibre
- scarlet & deep red merino wool
- Sheer black embroiderd dot silk chiffon
- upcycled pink & red vintage silk scarf pieces

The edges of the scarf gently undulate giving the wrap a quirky edge. It measures 71 " long (180cm) and between 18" (46cm) and 22" (56cm) wide and is so light it weighs almost nothing! Great for travelling - the perfect warmth for your shoulders on a cool evening, and can provide the glamour too!

The technique used to create this scarf is called nuno felting and is a way of using a pure silk fabric and felting wool fibres into it to form a unique texture. An irregular ruched crinkled texture is created. I have tried to show close ups of the texture in the photos, but i'm not sure you can see the real beauty.

This is a unique, one off handmade wrap and I want you to be thrilled when you recieve it so it is made with utmost care. You will not be dissappointed!! They are a stunning addition to your wardrobe and will transform an outfit. They also make wonderful gifts!

I am a one woman true "cottage industry", a fashion designer by training and now working from my home studio to make unique and individualistic pieces. If this is not quite what you are looking for, I do take commissions - just send me an email! Felting is my passion and I am constantly listing new items, so do take a look at my other listings, and add me to your favourites so you will be the first to see the new pieces in my collection.

Thankyou for taking the time to look at my handmade creations,I hope to see you again!
