Inspired by the peacock tail which contains spectacular beauty because of the large feathers, bright, iridescent colours and intricate patterns.
This nuno-felted scarf consists of chiffon silk (100%) in petrol colour and extra-fine (18 mic) merino wool from Australia and New Zealand in a punch of colours; violet, purple, lilac, turquoise, pink, blue, green, red, deep red and black colours! The petrol 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 167 cm (65.7in) length and 35-42 cm (13.8-16.5in) 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!
