Blue and Brown Felted Silk Scarf by Susan Hendroff.
Hand felted merino wool on hand dyed silk scarf, light weight but warm. Ideal for Perth’s Autumn and winter, or just to add some colour to that evening outfit. The scarves are soft and free flowing, an absolute delight to wear.
The wool and silk are sourced locally in Western Australia and hand dyed.
Susan then designs the combination of colours, hues, shapes of the wool and silk and fuses them together by a technique known as Nuno Felting.
This is where the two materials are bonded together using soap, cold and hot water plus a lot of friction by rolling and throwing.
The wool and silk scarf is then washed in cold water and laid flat to dry.
The after care of the scarf is simply by gentle hand washing in cold water only, as hot water will cause shrinkage.
Approx 140 cm long by 30 cm wide.
