Nuno felted shawl Emerald green silk and merino wool shawl wrap
This nuno felted shawl is made with felted soft superfine merino wool (18 micron) and delicate Margilan silk gauze combined together using the wet Nuno felting technique. It is lightweight, luxurious and is an explosion of textures as I used different fibers for decor such as: Mulberry silk fibers, Silk hankies, Margilan silk gauze and merino wool nepps.
The merino wool was dyed by Italian DyeingHouseGallery DHG and is Oeko-Tex certified. All silk fibers were hand dyed by me using high quality Ashford wool and silk dyes which also comply with Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
Length - 180 cm (~ 71 inches)

Wool is naturally resistant to dirt and absorbs water very slowly making it possible to remove any potential stains quickly with a wet cloth (dab, do not rub aggressively). Like any silk/ wool product, avoid warm water and agitation which may cause shrinkage. Gently hand wash in lukewarm water approximately at 30C (86F) with appropriate wool/silk detergent/soap if needed. Rinse in cool water a number of times until water runs clear. Gently squeeze out water (avoid wringing). Roll in a towel to remove excess water, hang or lay flat to dry. Reshape with hands while damp if necessary or with an iron set for SILK or WOOL. Steam Iron is also okay to use.
Please notice: Felt will shrink and lose shape if machine washed or tumble dried.
