Handmade White Ruffle Nuno* Felt Silk Shawl, Tipped with Soft Grey wool and White Viscose
This lightweight Shawl is made with 100% silk and Superfine Merino wool. The ruffle, shoulders and neckline are crafted so that there is no sewing involved in this piece. The misty grey edging is made from a locally sourced grey wool fiber. There is a hint of white Tussah fibers added for a touch of shimmer.
The Shawl is very sheer and is perfect as a unique statement piece to add to your wardrobe.
Hand wash in cool water, with mild detergent and rinse well. Allow to air dry. Be careful not to agitate, machine wash or place in the dryer. The edge of the wool ruffle can be gently stretched while pressing with an iron on the wool setting. This will add fullness to the ruffle.
Nuno Felting is the process of combining wool fiber with a sheer silk fabric to produce a strong but light weight item. In this case, the Nuno Felt technique is used to attach a wool ruffle to the shawl without sewing. The wool is worked or felted enough to completely engulf the silk fabric.
