An original, amazing wrap designed from handmade felt with endless possibilities of play! I chose to make this chiffon wrap combining chiffon silk that I dyed slate blue and soft merino wool, the colour of desert sands. Blue tussah silk and mohair accents embellish the merino wool. A lot of time and patience were involved in fusing the merino into the chiffon and I had more than a few moments of almost "putting on the give~ups"!

I stitched many lines across the material to enhance the already bubbly airy texture of the material. The silk billows and bubbles out of the wrap and it also reversable~ if you like the slate colour and texture of the silk effect showing in the front.

Two lovely brass buttons were hand stitch on one end of the wrap and close the stole around you but you don't have to use them! The length of the wrap is approximately 60 inches by 15 inches (varying as it is not a completely straight piece of material...handmade felt!).

Lots to play with this majickal piece of texture and fibre and endless possibilities! A one of a kind, unique piece of wearable art!

*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!
