Nuno felting is a fast, fun way to make felted garments, accessories, and cloth. You just start with a piece of fabric, lay out a design with wool and other fibers, and apply water and a little muscle to make lovely, pucker embellished fabric.

Because you start with existing fabric, the felting goes fast, so this is a great way to dress up your wardrobe, make gifts, or produce items for sale, and to use up small amounts of pretty fiber from your stash. Master felter Sharon Costello will get you started, taking you through the steps to create an artistic nuno-felted silk scarf.

You'll learn:

  • The best fabrics, fibers, and tools for nuno felting
  • How to lay out the felted designs
  • How to felt the fabric
  • How to add other embellishments

With Sharon’s clear instructions and beautiful examples, you, too, will be inspired by this very modern innovation on the ancient craft of felting.
