“It must just be the colors
And the kids that keep me alive
‘Cause I’d wanna go right away
To a January night
I built a shack with an old friend
He was someone I could learn from
Someone I could become
Will you meet me down
On a sandy beach
We can roll up our jeans
So the tide won’t get us below the knees…”
~ Colors and the kids by Cat Power
This nuno-felted shawl is created from cotton gauze fabric in grass green colour and extra-fine merino wool from Australia and New Zealand in deep red, white, grass green, cypress green, black and yellow. The cotton fabric is loosely woven thus creating the impression of a net. Weaving these different materials together with the wet-felting technique a wrinkle effect is produced. The distinction between this nuno-felted scarf and a simple wet-felted item is that it contains also a different material except from wool, i.e. cotton or silk.
The shawl measures approximately 183 cm (72 in) length and 60 cm (23.6 in) width.
The cotton-wool combination offers a soft and cozy feeling; Its earthy tones together with its soft and warm nature turns it into the perfect accessory for winter!
As all scarves made by QaraQul also this one is a unique piece!
