A sexy black lace capelet makes the perfect accent! I added a thin edging of black merino wool that I wet felted into the black lace around the neck line and along one side of the capelet. I stitched over the edging with black dotted lace for added texture and a slight ruffle over the length of one side. This flattering wrap hangs on many body types and there are many ways to wear the stole if you rotate the piece around the neckline.

I made three black and white silk roses to embellish the neckline and they make a nice drop point for draping the capelet.


*Nuno felting~ wet felting raw wool into material until it fuses together to become one.
*Wet nuno felting involves layers of raw wool strategically placed on top of a chosen material (ie. chiffon silk, nettle, bamboo etc.). Once assembled, the loose piece is placed on my trusty bamboo mat on my bathroom floor or deck and I proceed to wet felt by hand. Heat, water, agitation and eco-friendly soap are my main ingredients. After rolling the material in the bamboo mat hundreds and hundreds of time, the fibres eventually fuse together creating a solid, one of a kind piece of material!
