Two more scarves for the markets

Yesterday, along with the Poppy Scarf, I also made a couple more nuno felt scarves using a hand-dyed piece of chiffon that I cut into one thin and one wider strip. I was very industrious as I was working towards today’s Glasshouse Market stall, and the next few markets before Christmas.

Without going into the ins and outs of the whole production, here are some photos of the finished scarves.

Fantasy flower nuno felt scarf

Keeping on a theme of undyed tissue silk as a base for my scarves, which I rather like as it allows the bold colours of the flowers to stand out, I have taken lots of hand dyed silk, cotton scrim, silk tops and hankies and added them to both ends, to create a fantasy flower effect.  Adding a hint of Angelina fibre to the centres of the flowers, catches the light and gives a subtle dash of sparkle.

This one predominant colours are rose, lavender and heliotrope, with some aqua green for leaves.

The long edges of the scarf are more fluted than usual too, as I laid the wool in a different direction this time as I wanted more of a softer, cobwebby effect, which I am happy with.
