The spirit of the fox represents wisdom, quick thinking, and adaptability. Perhaps my hand painted fox could guide you when you are facing tricky situations. Besides that, this shawl would be a joyful accessory and is compatible with many styles, from jeans to an evening dress.
This shawl is very cozy and soft. It is made of nice, thin silk and felted with softest merino wool/ silk blend and alpaca.
First, very light silk 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 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.
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.
Size is approximately 32’/80″.
