We love seeing the before and after photos! Isn’t this a lovely composition?
“I made this scarf using Living Felt’s green silk and I’m going to try cutting it up like Marie showed to make it longer. I love the colours.”

Astounding, Remarkable, Brilliant! Sonja shared in our fb group how she made this INCREDIBLE hat!!! It took a lot of finagling, but she really pulled it off!
“So i made a hatter jacket to go with the hatter hat. Nuno felt and i have a love hate relationship.
I love the potential but never seem to have enough control (or space). This uses silk chiffon dyed with coffee, asparagus merino, merino luxury batt in forest, and the Autumn leaves artist pack. I adapted the pattern from a Russian dress pattern. Please excuse my sad hatter makeup and selfie timer portrait session.”

From self pro-claimed “newbie” status to Rockin’ Felted Neck Wrap…in just one day 🙂 Within a day of downloading our Nuno Felting Tutorial for a highly textured neck wrap or scarf…Thayer made this! She used a variety of fibers including Merino Top in Teal, Lagoon, and Ruby along with locks and her own silk and embellishments.
“I made my first project! See photos in the comments!!! Thank you so much for adding me. I’m going to try to not be too much of an over-excited newbie.”
– Thayer Abigail, Louisiana
Aniko is always sharing wonderful scarves in our facebook group. We really like this clever use of prefelts in her nuno felt scarf.

We challenged the ever-adventurous Sonja Weeks Oswalt of Tennessee to felt up anything she felt inspired to with our Fire Mountain Designer Pack, and she made this awesome ensemble.
She added approx. 2oz of additional fiber so she could make all 3 pieces. The scarf is nuno felted and the silk was initially dyed with Kool-Aid. The wrist warmers were wet felted over a resist, we have a free video lesson for this, and the hat was first wet felted flat and then shaped over a hat block.
The wrist warmers can shrink quite a bit!
Sammie Choy in Honolulu shared her super fabulous nuno felted neck warmer following our free video tutorial. Look at all of the texture in this beautiful piece and how wonderfully her chosen colors play together.
“I really enjoyed watching your tutorial and decided to follow your color scheme. Here’s my version.”

If you prefer written instructions, this is the same process outlined in detailed photos and written direction for 3 different wraps in our PDF tutorial available here.
We had a lovely time meeting and visiting with Maria Cohen from Florida. Maria came in to hang out for a while and work on a felt painting. She brought with her this awesome “show-n-tell” that really impressed us.
Maria Cohen Nuno Wrap 06 2016
This pretty shawl is nuno felted with Living Felt MC-1 batting onto cheese cloth.
Maria used very thin layers and it is beautiful and drapey with a nice hand. It could be converted into a table runner or functional item also.
Primary colors in this piece are MC-1 Indigo and Boysenberry.
