“She comes in colors everywhere;
She combs her hair
She’s like a rainbow
Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her all in gold?
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots her colors all around
Like a sunset going down
Have you seen a lady fairer? …”

My enormous desire to get rid of the hard winter and to walk deep into the hot colorful summer beauties partly led me to the creation of this scarf! While I was yearning for summer, the wonderful song of Rolling Stones was keeping me company either by listening to it or by just singing it silently in my mind! This song was the main spark of my inspiration! She’s like a Rainbow!

This nuno-felted summer scarf consists of chiffon silk in yellow colour and extra-fine Australian merino wool in a punch of colours; Violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red! The yellow chiffon silk is used as a basis for the scarf and the wool is applied on the top in order to create the patterning. It is created with the wet felting technique. 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. silk. The scarf measures approximately 155 cm (61 in) length and 27-35 cm (10.6-13.8 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!
