Nuno felting with peacock silk
This material came from Asia, so the wait time was longer but the price wasn't bad for the quality of the material . The first is a very sheer material, I think synthetic with some lovely peacock feathers embellished on it . Very glittery and fun to work with . I cut around the felather on the edge and laid my roving over them and was suprised how well the wool felted in . The edges were thick enough to create a smooth wool and the finer bits I placed between the embellishments gave the fabric a nice crinkled look .
I have several new projects to share this coming week....making labels for your items, dog collars from vintage sari fabric and wool and a few up-coming selling events<-----scary !
Happy felting !
