Handmade Nuno* Felt White Silk Scarf with White Wool Ruffle and Shimmering Pastel Accents
This lightweight accent scarf is made with 100% silk and merino wool. The Ruffle is crafted so that there is no sewing in this project. The gleaming pastel silk accents are made from dyed Tussah silk topped with white Viscose fibers.
The scarf is very sheer and not designed for warmth, but it is perfect as a unique statement piece to add to your wardrobe. It can be worn as a shawl wrap as well as a traditional neck scarf.
Hand wash with cool water, mild detergent and rinse well. Be careful not to agitate, machine wash or place in the dryer. Allow to air dry. The edge of the wool ruffle can be gently stretched while pressing, on the wool setting, to 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..
