I made this scarf using the nuno Felting method.* I started with a silk chiffon scarf and added Merino wool roving and silk hankies (thin layer of silk the size of a hankie) and Teeswater locks (from a farm in Estacada). I dyed the scarf in a Turquoise bath.
Hand wash in cold water 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.
