Thank you for looking! This and my other scarves and accessories will be back in stock and ready to ship after 10/25.

This lovely scarf is created from silk gauze felted with wool and silk to create a light, airy feel...perfect year round.

The variegated roving used in this scarf comes from Vermont, where it is hand dyed in small batches to ensure its color and maintain its softness. The Bluefaced Leicester (a type of sheep!) wool is mixed with a silk, which gives a little sheen to the scarf. The color in this batch reminds me of deep ocean waters, ranging from purple to blue to aqua to green. I hand dyed the silk in a complementary color to play off those tones. The roving on the reverse is merino wool in a deep blue. The scarf is accented with silk and tencel fiber and coordinating art yarns to give a hint of shine. The photos try to show the mix of materials, but it is impossible to do justice to the details...it is even more fascinating in real life! The fibers and silk work together to create a softly puckered texture, which to me is the most intriguing thing about nuno felting.

I've lightly felted on both sides to keep the "floaty" feeling. The edges have an organic waviness, and the ends are fringed in the wool and yarn. The scarf measures 12" wide and is 68" long to the end of the silk and 82" long to the end of the fringe, making it versatile enough to wrap around at least twice. Merino and BFL wool are very soft and not itchy against the skin, making comfortable to wear.

Nuno felting is the process of manipulating wool roving through fabric using soapy water and lots and lots of rubbing and agitation...and lots and lots of time and patience! Each piece takes several hours to create. I consider each piece "art to wear", and no two are alike.

Handwash cold, gently rinse and squeeze out excess water. Hang to dry.

Shipping:

Returns and Exchanges: 

I consider each item a unique piece of art crafted with care and attention to detail.  Hopefully you will find your purchase even more beautiful than you imagined!  Please know that felting and fiber art is an unpredictable and organic process which I embrace.   Wavy edges and puckers in a silk scarf, for example, are part of the charm of the piece.  I try to show these characteristics in the photographs so that you can appreciated the unique qualities of the piece of wearable art that you purchase!  However, if your item is not as expected, please contact me within 7 days of receipt to discuss an exchange or return.
