Handmade Felted Scarves and Wraps

Each of these pieces is one of a kind - perfect for a little warmth on a cool summer's evening, a cosy snuggle in front of the TV or for warmth and comfort in the winter.

Wraps take around 8 hours to make, scarves around 5 - it takes approximately 2-3 hours to lay out the wool for a wrap and then around 3-5 to work the wool into felted cloth - the process is a meditative and ancient one.

I use high-quality wools and fibres, olive oil soap and lots of time and energy in making these pieces. Many of the wools have been artist-dyed, the wools originally coming from small herds of specialised breeds of sheep or alpaca - often I add silk for its softness and shine. Occasionally a piece has silk ribbon, collected threads or fabrics, lace or hand-embroidery incorporated into it.

If there is a particular colourway you are looking for, please contact me and I may be able to help.

Measures approx.8 x 47 inches / 21 x 119 cm; this scarf is beautifully soft and warm and should keep you snug.

Will arrive in a pretty satin embroidered keepsake bag. £52.00
