Felted Wearable Art Wrap

Hi Everyone!
It's felting season and this is my latest felted silk scarf. First I wet felted fibers into a skinny scarf using fleece, yarns, silk bits and other fibers, sandwiched between fusible webbing. After needlepunching it using my Babylock Embellisher, I placed the scarf in water to remove the webbing.  Voila -- it disappears!

After drying, it was nunofelted with a sheer chiffon aqua scarf, then dried in the sun.
Here's a closeup of the fibers and fleece:

This scarf is instantly warm, light and very flowy. Scarf measures 66" long by 16" wide. Definitely a conversation piece. Everyone will say to you: "Where did you get that?"

Visit my Global Knits Etsy Shop to purchase it or browse at my other fiber art pieces.
