Emerald Nuno Felted Scarf

Interpreting a client’s ideas and translating this description into a work of fiber art, especially as a totally new and original design, is a time-consuming and welcome challenge. I always learn a lot in the process, because instead of mining my own imagination, I’m viewing my work also through another person’s eyes.

For this nuno felted scarf, the challenge was to create a very emerald green piece, very light-weight, with touches of brown, black, navy and gray. The client loves gardening, and along with the color emerald green, this was the inspiration for the design.

The result is a 12″ x 60″ gossamer scarf that weighs one and a half ounces and is completely reversible. One side has a delicate vine motif and lots of silk fiber to enhance the surface design; the other side is plain and highlights the hand-dyed habotai silk colors: chartreuse, spring green, leafy green with warmer tones and cooler tones of green; as well as hints of the emerald green merino fiber which has been worked through from the other side and has created lots of texture in the piece.

The plain side is so different from the side with the vine motif:

I hope my client likes it!
