“The look of love is in your eyes
a look your smile can’t disguise
the look of love
is saying so much more than these words could ever say
and what my heart has heard, well it takes my breath away
I can hardly wait to hold you, feel my arms around you
how long I have waited
waited just to love you, now that I have found you
don’t ever go…”
This beautiful song “the look of love” by Nina Simon sparked my imagination to create this scarf! The scarf is named after the album “silk & soul” since the whole album is a masterpiece!
This nuno-felted scarf consists of chiffon silk (100%) in orange colour and extra-fine (18 mic) merino wool from Australia and New Zealand in a punch of colours; blue, light blue, red, orange, blonde yellow and yellow. Additionally extra fine mulberry silk threads in blonde yellow and light blue are used in order to offer a shiny effect which adopts different hues depending on the natural light. The orange chiffon silk is used as a basis for the scarf and the wool is applied on the top in order to create the patterning.
This 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 140 cm (55.1 in) length and 30 cm (11.8 in) width.
As all scarves made by QaraQul also this one is a unique piece!
