Nuno Felted Scarf with an “Ocean” Theme

IMG_0402

This scarf was created by a student in a one-day “Intro to Nuno Felting” workshop I recently taught.   Inspired by images of kelp forests, the student carefully applied a minimal amount of merino and silk fiber on a base of hand-dyed (by Suzanne Morgan) habotai silk fabric.  The result is a shimmering piece with luxurious drape, that measures 12″ x 67″ and weighs just an ounce and a half.  Nuno felting takes time and patience, but it’s an easy technique if you understand the “mechanics” of how the process works.

I’ll be offering small-group nuno felting workshops in the fall (please contact me to receive notices about workshops); and also schedule individual felting workshops by-arrangement.
