Nuno-Felted Swap Scarf

 

 

 

 


I'm participating in another amazing swap...

...arranged by the fabulous Nicola (Clasheen).

(She's a pip!)

Now that my swap partner has received her box of goodies...

...I can show you photos of one gift that I made especially for her!

I took a length of my hand-dyed silk gauze...

...and added wool fiber in matching shades of aqua and denim.

I placed the wool by following the pattern of dyeing on the scarf...

...and left the white sections bare.

I used cool water and rolled and rolled it at first...

...to encourage the fibers to migrate through the silk.

Nuno felting is not my strong suit...

...and it's hard, but I think it was worth it this time!
