In this scarf I've tried Wool&Silk mix and liked it a lot!

I add some pieces of a silk scarf to get nuno effect. I am not sure it was silk scarf but to felt it in was easy anyway... And contrast of felty and silky parts is nice.

Ruffle Scarf in Grey

Ruffle scarf again! I become addicted apparently...

I've never expected, that to make a good picture of a felted piece would be so difficult, mine are just rubbish!

Ruffle Scarf "Autumn"

I keep making ruffle scarves. This one is rather long one and with different combination of colours on both sides. The colours are mixture of autumn colours - green, copper, orange and so on..

Materials: Merino wool 21&18.5 mic, wool/silk mixture, mulberry silk, viscose fibers. By the way for this project I dyed white viscose fibers with strong tea solution to get soft brown (wheat?) colour!

Playing with Nuno

I have very mixed feeling about nuno-felting... I like it and I want to try it but all my tries come to "interesting" results. Yesterday I tried it again, so there is a nuno-scarf. Side parts are two halves of a scarf (silky touch, but I think it's very fine cotton) and merino in the centre.

This is how it looks on the other side:

It's rather soft, drapey and warm, but desing is not my strong side, definetely!

Ruffle Scarf

I made it! My first ruffle scarf, here it is!

I am quite happy with a final result, I got a lot of positive thinking and learned some lessons. So what is good and what is not?


- I've finished it myself without any supervision (with virtual help and advice so!) and I like it, which is the main thing;

- I more or less happy with the texture and colour blend;

- I've got a nearly perfect edge!

Something to look forward to:

- the texture is far from perfect still;

- the ruffles should be bigger;

- a lot more I don't know about yet!

Still it's lovely and I need to make a matching brooch, something like this:
