…means for mummy that she can go back to felt. I haven’t felted a thing during the holidays, instead I was trying to catch up with some listings of scarves I had made before holidays started. Here they are…
This first one is made of cashmere, probably the most luxurious fibre I have felted so far. I have it in two shades, vanilla and mocha and laid tha darker one in the middle. The felt is very soft and has a beautiful sheen, I woud say almost if I used silk on top of merino.
The fibre which I used for this scarf is probably the most extraordinary I have used so far. It is a genuine chinchilla hair. Again, very soft, giving a great texture, felts easily. Becasue it is shorter I “stabilized” it with very thin layer of merino in between. Chinchilla seems to me similar to angora fibre, it is as soft and about the same lenght.
This white wrap is the biggest thing I have felted so far, from the kitchen worktop I had to go down on the floor covered with a plastic sheet, well on the carpet in the lounge I should say. Finished, it measures 60 x 180 cm or 24 x 70 inch and is heavily embellished with mulberry silk on both sides.
And here is a bit 🙂 of colour. Merino felted with tencel, cellulose fibre, first in a natural ecru then dyed. The last one is nunofelted, different shades of red merino felted in yellow silk chiffon. I left edges without merino to create this lovely frills.
