Finally! A Few New Handmade Felted Creations to Share - Summer Nuno Scarves

I feel like it has been a very long time since I've shared any felted creations with you that weren't baby or nursery related. Over the weekend, I decided to use some of the silk in my stash to create summer style scarves. These were created through nuno, or laminated, felting where I joined wool to a silk base. Essentially, the scarves are just two thin layers which allows them to still be durable, but also super soft and very lightweight. That is why I call them summer scarves because they really could be worn in summer or any season for that matter. Please check out the photos below to see how my summer scarves turned out.

I created this scarf as a gift for my boss. Next week is my last day at work. I'm happy to be leaving my teaching position to be staying home with the baby soon, but I will miss having classes and instructing students in design. My boss is a wonderful lady that has treated me very well over the last few years that I've worked at my position. I thought that a neutral charcoal gray and white scarf would make a nice gift for her. I hope she likes it!


This scarf was fun to make! I created the scarf itself through nuno felting with BFL wool, silk gauze, and some linen flax. I then hand dyed the scarf through shibori techniques to create the striping. I am really enjoying the dye process and am already in the process of creating some more multi-colored scarves. I have yet to decide if I will keep this scarf for myself or gift it or sell it.
