Open weave Thai scarf – great to felt!

Today I woke up bright and early, thanks to a reasonably early night.  The sun was shining and it was a perfect day to make some felt.

Taking the lavender open weave Thai scarf that I recently hand-dyed, I chose some matching and complimentary colours and got to work on the layout.

The scarf length was a tad shorter than I’d begin with, being 150cm, but I added some wool to make tassles and after playing around with the layout until I was happy, began felting.

I had to work it harder than when I felt onto silk chiffon or tissue silk.  I think because the cotton used for each part of the weave is tightly wound, and therefore harder for the little strands of wool to thread through them.

It’s not the first time I’ve worked on an open weave cotton, and I always like the finished result, despite wondering if it’s going to ‘stick’ together half way through lol.

There’s a picture of the finished scarf below showing both sides of the scarf and the tassles at each end.
