Felting is a technique in which loose wool and other fibers are layered together and saturated with soapy water. Through a process of agitation, the loose fibers interlock with each other to create a new fabric that is soft and light but very warm.

The process causes shrinkage of the fibers, and use of different types of fibers creates organic textures as each shrinks at a different rate. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art that cannot be reproduced!

In Cobweb Felting, a thin layer of wool fibers is teased apart to create interconnecting strands. During the agitation and shrinkage, a network of interlocking fibers like a spider’s web is created. Holes may form as a natural result of this process, and add extra interest to the texture of the piece. Sometimes I intentionally make these holes larger!

A cobweb scarf is very light and drapey but still strong and warm.

The main wool I use in my scarves is a very fine guage merino - the softest sheep's wool for next-to-skin comfort.

Fibers in this scarf: Merino wool, embellished with silk and tencel fibers.

Colors: Forest green, burgundy, gold, white.

Approx. Size: 7 x 67 in. (18 x 170 cm.)

Caring for Your Felted Scarf

  • Hand wash in cold water with mild detergent, dish soap or shampoo.
  • Squeeze gently but don't rub or wring.
  • Add a little fabric softener or hair conditioner to  final rinse to preserve softness.
  • Lay flat to dry. Gently stretch back into shape, just like you would a sweater.
