Scarf = silk + merino wool
Merino wool is soft and fine, and different from other wool. This merino wool is not scratchy or itchy. My customers and I, who ordinarilly do not like to wear wool garments next to our skin, are amazed with the comfort of wearing a scarf made of silk and merino wool.
Rose and Tan: Silk in a Can
Duncan Designs loves shopping in the Garment District of NYC to buy silk chiffon to create these colorful, hand-felted circular scarves from our buying trips. This all-season scarf is a compliment to any outfit: casual to business. And, it stores easily in a purse. Each scarf may be worn many ways, using the loop as a "catch," or knotting the loop, and sometimes simply wrapping the scarf around two times. Check out the various poses or invent your own! Silk in a Can makes a great gift and will arrive in its own 4”x 4” can.
This nuno-felted scarf was made by combining the silk with merino wool roving and soap & water. Then it was rolled 600 times, fulled (dropped to get the wool to go through the silk) and finally felted. To refresh: handwash with mild soap, air dry, and then lightly steam by holding the iron above the silk to soften it. Enjoy wearing this special, unique scarf!
