We love how beautifully this scarf and the flowers came out!
“Attempted nunofelting a large flower onto a silk gauze. I am happy with it as a first attempt. I only did one end of the scarf so I can learn something before I start the other end.
I followed Marie Spaulding’s instructions [to avoid puckering] – cold water, rub and roll, no wad or throw, no cold/hot rinse.
I only added one improvisation, which is ironing while still wet from the reverse.
Update: my pansies scarf is now officially finished on both sides, I am adding more progress and finished photos. Thank you for your lovely feedback!”

Fatima shared her lovely scarf in our group LIVING FELT FRIENDS, this is just one of the beautiful pictures she shared.
“Nuno scarf made with @Living Felt kit. Easy to make and so beautiful.
It comes with a very good instruction sheet.”
– Fatima Mensen-Potter, Florida
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.”

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.”

Aniko is always sharing wonderful scarves in our facebook group. We really like this clever use of prefelts in her nuno felt scarf.

This gorgeous and vibrant nuno felt shawl was felted by our friend Mary Denmead of Washington.
It was created for a community art show with a bird theme, and the inspiration came from the mythical creature, Garuda, a symbol seen in Hindu and Buddhist texts.
“I used many different merino colors and black crepe silk for the base. I made some silk “paper” with tussah silk and used that to cut out the feather details for the embellishment. I love how they pick up the light.
The inspiration for this “bird” is the Garuda – a mythical creature that reminds us to live joyfully in the moment – without limits – and without attachment to outcomes.
Grateful to all of you for the inspiration you give all of us merry felters!
Happy Fall! ~ Mary”
If you have been with us for a while, might recall that we first saw nuno felt scarves by Mary back in 2011.
She started with the Living Felt Deluxe Nuno Felting Kit in Fairy Hollow, and went on to WOW us
with her next scarf from our Apple Orchard Specialty Designer Pack.
Below is her fabulous scarf and her note about the pack:
“Hi Marie and everybody at Living Felt- Here’s my most recent nuno scarf made with your incredible Apple Orchard Specialty designer goody pack and a silk scarf. Your designer packs are all so incredible…I can’t wait to pick another one! Thank you for the sweet emails I’ve received from you and for posting my first scarf on your site and blog! My goodness, I am so flattered. You sure know how to make a gal’s day :). “
Blessings! Mary Denmead
It really makes “our day” to get such wonderful photos and feedback! Mostly, we are SUPER CHARGED when we witness
our creative friends delighting in their own process and outcomes! :O)
Fatima Kaser felts wonderful wool scarves in a variety of styles.
She first learned to felt in Amsterdam, and now that she is back in the states, she has resumed her felting.
We love the bright and bold colors of this scarf that seem very appropriate
for Fatima’s lovely young model and daughter.
Fatima uses primarily Merino Top and Mohair Locks for her scarves;
some are pure wool and others are nuno felted over a silk base.
A very elegant wrap for an elegant lady.
Fatima is currently averaging almost a scarf a day, making them
mostly for friends and family in their choice of colors.
