Purple and Green Scarf, 2024

I am working in nunofelt felting, it is a wet felting process.  I am working in Margelan silk from Uzbekistan and Merino wool from Italy for my scarfs, very soft and lightweight fabrics. 


When I am working on a bag or home shoes I am using wool, I am also drawing a picture on silk with wool in different colors.  The I am moistening with water and soap and rolling my silk and wool together.  This takes time, but always the result is interesting.
