Nuno Felt Shawl

Nuno Felt
is made by applying a fine layer of fibres over a sheer natural fibre woven cloth. I've used 22 micron Merino Fleece and cotton voile.
The wool fibres penetrate the cloth and felt, causing the fabric crinkle.
This method creates a light weight and drapable fabric.
The finished shawl is 160cm wide and 100cm long.

Very beautiful shawl!

What is felting?

"FELT" The Essential Macquarie Dictionary meaning:

"A non woven fabric of wool, fur or hair matted together by pressure"

Fibres can be manipulated with the use of soap, water, friction and heat variations ..........or the use of barbed needles to create many interesting, practical and wearable things.
