This scarf is made using the nuno felting method.* I started using a hand dyed silk chiffon scarf and added Merino wool roving and wool yarn for design. The last two photos show how much shrinkage happens in felting. The photo on the left is the layout before felting

7 inches wide and 67inches long.

Wash separately with mild soap. Squeeze gently and lay out or hang to dry.

*Nuno felting is a process by which raw wool is laid out in a desired pattern on silk or other natural fabric, adding soap and water, then rubbing and rolling together until the fibers travel through the fabric. When the fibers come through it is time to shock the fibers by throwing it or rubbing and agitating the scarf thus shrinking it up to 50% of the original piece.
