Nuno Felt Scarves & Wraps
Nuno felting is the method whereby wool fibres are laid over a second fabric, in most cases this will be silk. The fibres are then wet felted (using water soap and friction) until the wool migrates through the fabric and becomes permanently bonded to it. The end result is a beautiful new material with all the best properties of both fibres! The colour of the original fabric glows through the wool fibres in a truly magical way!
The gallery below shows examples of my nuno felted accessories. These pieces may now be sold (if you click on any photo it will show you details of the item).
AS MANY OF YOU WILL NOW BE AWARE I FULLY EXPECT THAT 2019 WILL SEE THE END OF MY BUSINESS AS A PURELY FELT-MAKING ENTERPRISE, A COMBINATION OF INSUFFICIENT SILK OF THE RIGHT QUALITY AND PRESENT MARKET SITUATION ARE CERTAINLY PART OF THAT DECISION. HOWEVER, I DO VERY MUCH HOPE TO CONTINUE WITH TEXTILES IN SOME SHAPE OR FORM SO PLEASE WATCH MY FACEBOOK PAGE FOR UPDATES!
THIS DOES MEAN THAT MANY OF MY PIECES WILL START TO BE REDUCED IN PRICE AS I LOWER MY STOCK LEVELS - PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME TO MY HOME TO VIEW EVERYTHING I HAVE AVAILABLE, OR COME ALONG TO ONE OF THE SHOWS I AM ATTENDING.
I WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE MADE MY FELTMAKING A REAL JOY WITH YOUR CONSTANT ENTHUSIASm, INTEREST (AND OF COURSE YOUR PURCHASES!!!).
LOVE & BEST WISHES FAITH X
