To create Nuno Felt, very small amounts of wool are layered on a pre-existing base fabric- usually silk or cotton. During the felting process the wool fibers migrate through the weave of the cloth and entangle , pulling the cloth along with them as they shrink. The result is a fully integrated and highly textural fabric. Completely hand washable and not nearly as delicat as it looks! Original one-of-a-kind wearable art!
Your scarf will measure approximately 18X 55 inches upon completion. We will be using silk gauze and the finest merino wool roving to create our fabric. This process will involve some physical activity, but it will be worth it!
All materials will be provided- $25 material fee is due to the instructor the day of class.
