Handmade Nuno* Felted Scarf or Neck Warmer
This scarf is an extremely soft and lightweight neck warmer. It is crafted using the Nuno Felt technique with a sheer blue silk as a base or carrier fabric. The green wool is 100% Baby Alpaca fiber from Hollyhock Farm in Cambridge MN. These baby animals have the most luxuriously soft fiber, especially if it’s their very first ‘haircut’. The ruffle from this fiber is a first cut, so it’s very soft and almost looks like lace. The black shadows are made from Tussa silk. They combine with the sheer base silk to make a stronger fabric that drapes nicely.
The scarf can be secured with a unique button feature. By pulling one end through the button loop, you can create a gentle soft bow. This scarf can also be secured with your favorite pin or one of our flower accents (sold separately). There is a ruffle on 3 sides, leaving the 4th end with less bulk that allows the scarf to lay in a smooth, soft manner.
The scarf can be hand-washed in cool water with a mild soap, rinsed and laid flat to dry. Be careful not to agitate, machine wash or place in the dryer. Shape or block the scarf to measure 13” x 34”. Use the wool setting on an iron if necessary. The outer edge of the ruffle can be gently stretched while pressing to enhance it’s fullness.
Nuno felting is the process of combining wool fiber with silk fabric to produce a strong but light weight item.
