This can be used to make very delicate scarves. It's good if you have a lot
of working space for this. The skill in making these scarves is knowing when to
stop felting! They can look very professional and just the accessory you can
make to co-ordinate with clothing.
Vertical yarns were added to the merino and silk base and
then felted in gently.
I prefer to use silk as the base, although many fabrics can be used.
This green top
began life as a teaching sample for a workshop. It is even more special to me as
I have added machine knit edgings from a designer ( sadly no longer with us)
called Audrey Palmer.
I like to make Nuno felt where the silk shows through and is part of the
finished effect. This small sampler scarf is the result of several 'what if'
questions to myself.
