I took a nuno felting class last Saturday at Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill. We made a beautiful nuno felted scarf. Nuno is Japanese for fabric. To create nuno felt, small wisps of merino wool and other yarn embellishments are layered on a silk chiffon scarf. During the felting process the wool fibers migrate through the cloth and pull the cloth along with them as they shrink. The felting was fun as well as good exercise for the arms (great for those "Hello Betty's"). The technique involved bubble wrap, tulle, a pool noodle ,warm soapy water and some muscle. The end result was a very pretty one of a kind textural scarf.
The class was taught by Vickie Clonz, who was delightful.
