Handmade Nuno* Felt wool Scarf or Neck warmer with Baby Alpaca and Sand Colored Merino Wool Ruffle
This Nuno felted scarf is a very soft and lightweight neck warmer. The green wool base is Baby Alpaca fiber from Hollyhock Farm in Cambridge MN. These baby animals have the most luxuriously soft fiber. The tan ruffle is Merino wool, which is is agreeable to most with wool sensitivities. The ruffle is tipped with a green bamboo fiber and the gold edge highlights are made with natural colored Muga silk fibers.
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 12” x 30”. 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.
