Nuno Felted Scarf Over Silk
Nuno felting is a name derived from the Japanese word “nuno” meaning cloth. The technique bonds loose fibers, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze, creating a lightweight felt. It was first developed by Polly Stirling, a fiber artist from New South Wales. We will be using Merino roving and migrating the merino by gently rubbing and rolling it in to a silk gauze cloth. Prepare to be standing most of this class which will be learning to lay out fiber finely over the silk and then gently working the wool to migrate through the weave of the silk. You will want to wear short sleeved shirt or top, or during the rolling process you could get them wet. Your choice of colors will be along 3 color schemes with a basic color of either: blue, purple, or earth tones. These are multi colored rovings, which are hand dyed. You will leave with a completed scarf, very light weight and a wonderful accent to any outfit.
