Flower shawls

'Nuno felting is a fabric felting technique developed by Polly Stirling, a fiber artist from New South Wales, Australia, around 1992. The name is derived from the Japanese word "nuno" meaning cloth. The technique bonds loose fibre, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze, creating a lightweight felt. The fibres can completely cover the background fabric, or they may be used as a decorative design that allows the backing fabric to show. Nuno felting often incorporates several layers of loose fibres combined to build up colour, texture, and/or design elements in the finished fabric.' -- Wiki

This were my nuno felting experiments...

'Impressionist poppies' white chiffon shawl in silver grey, sky blue and scarlet.
A length of soft airy white chiffon + thin layer of fine merino wool = this weightless, cozy and warm shawl.  I've made this light piece remembering those freshly calm countryside mornings and flowering, chirring and buzzing summer meadows.
There are soft touches of silver grey and light blue, and strokes of various grassy green color.

This wrap is quite large.
Approximate measurements: 125 cm long x 62 cm wide -- 49,2" long x 24,4" wide.

'Riot of colors' impressionist sunny august garden, yellow, orange, blue and green nunofelted scarf.
Approximate measurements: 101 x 47 cm -- 39,7" x 18,5".
