Handmade White Scarf with Tan, Green and White Edged Ruffles
This Nuno* Felt scarf is a very soft and lightweight neck warmer. This is the natural white color of baby alpaca wool. These baby animals have the most luxuriously soft fiber. The tan ruffle is Merino wool, a 12th century breed of sheep from Spain. Merino is agreeable to most with wool sensitivities. The ruffle edge highlights are made with green bamboo fiber and white Viscose, a shiny, man-made cellulose fiber from various plant and wood by-products.
The scarf can 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 10” x 28”. 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.
