Nuno felting





This scarf is another try at nuno felting.

As you can see in the two photos that were taken while it was hanging to dry, the wool has not fully migrated through the silk and it doesn't really look finished.

After I popped it into a zippered pillow-case cover and machine washed and dried it, it looks much more felted.

I used pencil roving for the fringe. I really like it when it is long and wiggly like that!
