     Wearable Felted Fiber Art            by Lynda

These handcrafted scarves combine silk, gauze and wool fibers to create a beautiful scarf, great fashion style, and keep you warm at the same time.  Silk scarf base colors are hand dyed so are variegated in shades. Cobweb scarves have no base... the wool binds together with other wool fibers to create a light, airy, almost see-through piece, like a cobweb. The silk is felted with the other wool fibers in a process known as Nuno (Japanese word for cloth) felting. The end result is dazzling!

Each design is original and although no two are exactly the same, similar designs are possible. Scarf length and width does vary but custom orders are always welcome.

Wool & Silk Nuno Felted Scarves by Lynda

Although the scarf looks delicate, both the silk and wool fibers are durable and strong, especially when felted together. With proper care it will last for many years.
 
My silk and wool are from different sources but my favorite is right hear in Yakima at Bead & Body. For even more choices in Fibers, I go to Alpacabilities etsy shop.
