Silks for Nuno Scarves

 

My sister gave me a silk scarf the other day, which was delicate, sheer, and one of those treasures women cherish for their beauty. It is a gentle creamy white with small pink accents and grey and white filagrees printed on. To make it even more beautiful, there are little clear but reflective sequins sewn on here and there to give a bit of sparkle.

Inspired, I decided to invest in some sheer silks to attempt to create some equally charming scarves but of a different nature. I found a company called JRB Silks online and ordered these colors. The silk material will be used as background for the merino and silk fibers. I will felt merino wool and silk fibers onto the sheer fabric to create what is known as Nuno felting.

Nuno felting can be seen on many you tube videos and is not difficult.  I will post my results when I have experimented with this fun new creative process.
