It doesn’t hurt me
You want to feel, how it feels?
You want to know, know that it doesn’t hurt me?
You want to hear about the deal I’m making
You, you and me
And if I only could
Make a deal with God
get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
If I only could, oh…
Come on, baby, c’mon c’mon darling
Let me steal this moment from you now
Come on, angel, c’mon, c’mon, darling
Let’s exchange the experience
oh…

This nuno-felted scarf consists of chiffon silk in pink colour and extra-fine Australian merino wool in a punch of colours; dark red, pink, violet, purple, white, blueberry, apple green, cypress green and dark green! The pink chiffon silk is used as a basis for the scarf and the wool is applied on the top in order to create the patterning. The patterning incorporates wild spring flowers, at least as I imagine them!

The scarf is created with the wet felting technique. The distinction between this nuno-felted scarf and a simple felted item is that it contains also a different material except from wool, i.e. silk. It measures approximately 154 cm (60.6 in) length and 42 cm (16.5 in) width.

The combination of wool in thin layers and silk gives a very light and airy; sometimes even sheer fabric!

As all scarves made by QaraQul also this one is a unique piece!

  1. This scarf is beautiful. I recently bought a nuno felted scarf, (i had never heard of the process before) and, even MORE of a coincidence, I had just come across this artist, Kate Bush, whom I had never heard of (I am an American) and fell in love with her and her music.

    • Thank you Sherry! Indeed the nuno felting process is exciting and the results amazing. Kate Bush is also one of my favorite artists who has accompanied many of my life experiences and work.
