In this kit I have included hand-dyed silk voile fabric and matching luxury ultrafine merino fibres which have been blended with premium quality mulberry silk. As the base fabric is hand-dyed, the fibres are placed in a grid to allow the colours to shine through and give a very lightweight finished scarf suitable for all seasons.
Nuno felting combines fabric and fibres by friction to work the fine fibres through the mesh of a lightweight base fabric and bond them together. Cool water is used instead of the hot used when wet felting wool fibres alone as this allows the fibres to migrate through the fabric mesh before they are locked into place. The scarf is then fulled to mesh the fibres together further and help them to shrink, giving a ruched effect to the base fabric.

You will also need:
Empty sports top drinks bottle
Straight wooden rolling pin/ length of pool noodle/length of plastic pipe (no need to buy anything special as it will only be in contact with soapy water and can be washed and re-used as normal)
Old towel or J-cloths to mop up excess water
A work surface (eg table) that can be wiped down/covered with waterproof material
2 large elastic bands (optional)
The hand dyed materials in this kit have been well rinsed after dyeing, however a little loose dye may remain which may be released during the felting process. You may wish to wear gloves and protect your work surface whilst felting.
