Winter Collars

 It is getting cooler now so I have turned my attention to making felted scarves using carded organic lambswool and alpaca sliver with silk velvet embellishments

this was the first one I made and I love to snuggle into it when going out at night


they are really collars rather than scarves

draped around the neck and fastened in front with a favourite brooch or pin

all the fibres are either natural fleece colours or eco dyed and the silk velvet is coloured by eco printing it

some are wider than others and this one is really long!


what fun it is to just start mucking about with different materials and after a bit of experimenting ending up with beautiful things you can wear
