Nuno felt scarf and wrap pics at last!

Today I managed to take some pictures of the nuno felt scarf and wrap I felted using some of Kool-Aid dyed merino and ponge silk from the weekend.

Peaches and cream nuno felt wrap

No, we don’t have Kool-Aid here in Ireland but I am lucky to have a good US friend who knows I love it (NOT to drink but to dye with!!!), thanks Kristi!  It’s also on my ‘to buy’ list when I visit Jamie and Blas, Sharon and Emma, Dawn and Jan, the special friends who are so good to host felting workshops on my amazing trips across the water.

Incredibly, not only have I taken pictures of the two pieces but I also managed to revisit my Big Cartel online shop and get them listed earlier this afternoon.  Woo hoo, finally I have some items for sale again and not just languishing in my wardrobe!  I am also just about start a new page to update all my links and let you see which websites and blogs I follow, for today however enough is enough, I need to cook some food now and have a tasty supper!!!

Kool-Aid dyed ponge silk and merino roving = nuno felted scarf!

Yesterday I spent almost all day dying merino roving and ponge silk in the microwave using a variety of Kool-Aid colours/flavours, check out my Facebook page to see some pictures of the work in progress.  Although I am not going to go through a step by step discussion of what I did here tonight (still a couple of leaves to felt before I head off to bed, more another day!) I will leave you with a close up shot of the nuno scarf I felted yesterday evening.  I just couldn’t go to bed last night without getting my hands stuck into all that yummy coloured fibre now, could I???  I also felted an optional flower brooch to compliment this scarf and as soon as out weather picks up a little I’m going to take some photos of them as I want to upload it to the internet for sale, my shop has been totally quiet for far too long now!
