A Present for my Other Sister

This is a nuno felted scarf that I made for my other sister for Christmas. It didn’t get completed in time but since I am going to visit her soon, I will just take it with me then.

The silk scarf was actually a gift from Shepherdess Ann several years ago. I finally got around to using it. Thanks Ann! The scarf was dyed gold and purple. So I added a grey purple merino, slightly more purple merino and a gold merino. I also added some silk fibers and silk thread that Paula gave me. Thanks Paula! Very useful to have generous fiber friends.

Here’s a closer look of the silk fibers and silk thread.

The thread is loose in places so I hope it doesn’t catch on things. I thought about stitching it down but I like it the way it is.

And here is the silk side. I hope my sister likes it. You can click on any of the photos to get a larger view. Hope you have a good weekend!

 

P.S. I forgot to say that it was snowing when I took this photo and if you look closely, you can see a few snowflakes.
