Fibers for a Felted Scarf with a Floral Theme

Many steps in crafting what I hope will be a very unique, luxurious scarf…


Blending merino wool, silk, tunis and CVM, I carded a lavender and violet batt from which I spun a fluffy, thick and thin yarn single for the surface design. Then I carded a pearly-creamy batt from organic Polwarth, Cashmere, Silk and Merino fibers, to use for the base of the scarf. For the rest of the surface design, I cut silk fabrics for flowers and leaves; and prepared different colors and kinds of wool locks by separating them into tiny little curls. When I arranged the elements on a tray to get the studio ready to begin layout, the arrangement looked interesting. I hope the finished scarf will be as fine as these beautiful fibers are before being combined!
