Description

This shawl is very cozy and soft. It is made of nice, thin silk and felted with softest fine merino wool, wool/silk blend and
a little bit of rayon.

********************************************************************
First, this blue eyes husky was hand painted with silk dye and colors were set by steaming process. They don’t fade, even after repeated washing.
Then, it was felted with wool and silk to amplify the texture. I wanted to keep it light and breezy, so I didn’t use too much wool and left the painting to be the most important part of this piece.

**********************************************************************
Felting is an ancient textile art that includes several steps. With the help of soapy water and
rubbing, rolling, squeezing, and throwing, emerges a unique garment. When light fabric is incorporated into this process, it is called nuno felting.

**********************************************************************
The combination of silk and lightly felted merino wool makes this shawl look very delicate, but it is durable and easy to care of. You can hand wash it in cold water using mild soap. After that, wrap it into a towel and press down to dry. Could be dry cleaned as well.
