Nuno Felted Scarf

Rejoice, rejoice Denise and Eileen! At long last here are some photos of the scarf I dyed with Denise's help and then the next day laid some wool on it and turned it into a nuno felt scarf.





This is my work from the class taught by Kris Post, that Denise, Eileen and I enjoyed so much last weekend.

Great picture, the colors really show up well. I love how the nuno makes it's own ruffle effect, so delicate and feminine for something that takes hours of elbow grease to make .

Pretty, but I don't think I could pull it off.

That is gorgeous! I'm such a sucker for that shade of green. Is it already spoken for?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

ThoughtsonLifeandMillinery - how cool to catch your eye with this color and work. Before I sell any of this type of nuno work will need to do some wear testing and washing, etc. to see how it holds up.

So SelfTaughtArtist, that also means it will be a bit before I'm confident enough in my dyes not running and the wool not pulling out to list any of these on Etsy.

However, you have all sparked my incentive to get going with the testing.

Hugs to all. Jane

How are the edges finished? Are they hemmed?

Hi Summerset. On this scarf the edges are hemmed. It is a hand rolled hem. My friend had purchased a group of silk chiffon scarves from Thai Silks for us to use in this dying and nuno felting adventure.

Some people in the class did use silk scarves with unfinished edges.

Oo, that brings back a lovely day!! I'm so glad you posted your scarf photos online, so that other people have a chance to enjoy it as much as I did (and still do)! Pretty, pretty!!
