All my Fiber Art pieces are hand crafted and one of a kind. Wool fibers felted together are very strong and when paired with silk, even stronger. The process is known as Nuno (Japanese word for cloth) felting. The end result is dazzling!
They look delicate but really are very sturdy. They do, however, require hand wash care to keep from felting even more…
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 dyed using natural coloring — madder root, avacado skins, blueberries, cabbage, beets, etc. Cobweb scarves have no base… the wool binds together with the other wool fibers to create a light, airy, almost see-through piece, like a cobweb.
Clothing & Wearable Separates
Each piece of clothing is created using the “Resist” method of Nuno felting, there are no seams. This also makes each piece reversible. The colors are related but offer different detail to fit your mood. Custom sizes are available however I consider the below items a medium, 12 – 14 size.
Fiber Art in the Home
These reversible vessels are made with several layers of Merino wool, recycled sweater parts, and wool fabric for stability. The felting process layers the wool over a “resist” to prohibit the felting in parts and create the void that becomes the containment area.
They are hand washable in warm to cool water (not cold or hot!), gentle soap, no agitation, no machines. Once wetted again, the shape is finalized over a glass, bowl, box, balloon, or by padding with plastic filler to ‘block’ the shape until dry. With proper care they will last for many years.
