Shalana the Funky Felter again is offering my readers a chance to win these stunning Nuno felting Supplies.  She is offering a vibrant array of hand dyed silk scarves along with the roving in a blaze of colors and so you can try your hand at Nuno felting. This is such a generous offering from Shalana and I am sure everyone will want to enter this giveaway. The Nuno felting produces the most beautiful items let anyone would be proud to own. I have never tried this type of felting but it looks amazing. Nuno felting is a Japanese fabric felting technique. It melds loose fiber, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze. This creates a lightweight felt that can totally cover the background fabric or be used as a single decorative design. The Nuno felting process is particularly suitable for fine garment making, since silk-backed felt ensures a stable felt that will not stretch out of shape like normal felt. Because it is lightweight and easy to manipulate it can also be dyed more readily than traditional felt. Other fabrics or open weaves can be used as the felting background, resulting in a wide range of textural effects and colors.  Shalana has scarves “pictured above” using this process. I’ve seen some gorgeous designs in clothing and accessories as I constantly learn about the art of felting.  Many renowned designers are integrating felt into their runway shows. This giveaway will allow you the opportunity to own the products so you can start your adventure with Nuno felting. You will be winning the hand dyed silk scarves and the roving. To enter this contest, go over to The Funky Felter’s Etsy Fiber Shop and explain why you would like to try Nuno felting and what captivates you in her shop. Once you have decided come back here and leave your comments in the comment area.   She is giving you enough materials so you can make something stunning for spring.   One all-in-one pack of hand dyed silk gauze (9 different colored 4″ X 54″ un-hemmed pieces) and one “Pile of Wool” package of wool roving bunches (2 ounces total wool in 12 different colors).  The silks are all the colors from the new collection sets available.  The combination of 9 silks and 12 colors of roving is a nice starter set for anyone wanting to experiment with Nuno felting.  This giveaway will begin today February 7th through February 19th. Good luck to everybody this is an amazing giveaway.

  3. Kanntara on February 7, 2010 9:06 am

    I’ve been looking longingly at learning to felt and her colors just flame that. I want to start making hair decorations for my past waist length hair and this would be awesome to work with.

    I love all the felt hearts in her shop! They are so cute!

  4. Joanna on February 7, 2010 11:17 am

    Wow! Shalana is making such amazing things with nuno felt! I love her heart rings, they are so lovely! I really want to start my adventure with nuno felting. Why? Cause I would be able to make such cute accessories for me. I will make head accessories and jewelery which I love to wear ;)

    Greetings! Your Scarves are gorgeous! I love felting. I am pretty good at needle felting, though nuno is something I want to learn. Please enter me in your contest:)

  15. InJuneau on February 7, 2010 2:00 pm

    A local art center here has done similar felting, and I’ve never had a chance to take a class, so I would love to be able to learn to do this. I love the colors in the Hand Dyed Silk Collection for Nuno Felting, Fiber Art, and Textile Design – Stormy Desert Limited Edition Set.

  16. kim on February 7, 2010 2:32 pm

    woo-hoo! what a great give-away :D sign me up, linny loo! (thanks!)

  17. knitmit on February 7, 2010 2:34 pm

    wow how cute! I just started getting into needle and wet felting, so this would be fun to learn too! I would love to have all the colors in the beginners needle felting kit, but I also think the sweetheart bobby pins are adorable :)

  18. Cheryl S on February 7, 2010 3:41 pm

    Your choice of colors are spectacular! Your jewelry items would be fun to wear, especially the puffed heart and flower. To win would be incredible. I’ve just started dry felting after years of knitting with wool and felting and the possibilities are endless.

  19. Cheryl/FeltSewGood on February 7, 2010 3:43 pm

    I’ve been a fan of Shalana’s work for a while! Her scarves are just gorgeous! I’m intrigued with nuno felting and would love to try it.

  20. Thyme2dream on February 7, 2010 3:44 pm

    I LOVE Shalana’s scarves and the cute little hearts that dot things all about her shop:) I have been wanting to try nuno felting for awhile now, and I think I finally have time to do some this year!!

    My favorite scarf in her shop right now is:

  21. Cindi on February 7, 2010 3:50 pm

    The Funky Felter is so amazingly talented!
    My mother-in-law is sharing her felting talents with me. How wonderful it would be to win this very lovely hand dyed silk and gauze and 12 colors of wool would be a wonderful way to
    learn. Her “Handmade Wool and Silk Nuno Felted Scarf Wrap in Pink, Orange, and Olive” is truly an inspiration to me!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  22. Penny Dowdy on February 7, 2010 4:01 pm

    I have enjoyed needle felting, and would like to try nuno felting this spring!

  23. Libby White on February 7, 2010 4:02 pm

    Every thing about your work excites me. I want to give those dyed scarves a try. I have attempted numo a couple of time but it just hasn’t looked right. I will get trying till I get it right with some information and direction from you so please enter me into the giveaway.

  24. Roxanne on February 7, 2010 4:07 pm

    Would love to make a jacket or hat, I know, why not dream big!? Have not tried nuno felting yet, have an embellisher machine that I have felted with. clothing is my passion and Shalan’s wool is the best.

  25. Ellen Lai on February 7, 2010 5:10 pm

    I have only tried needle felting in small projects, and would love to try and learn more. Love all the colours, especially the hand dyed silk.

  26. Cat Brooks on February 7, 2010 5:38 pm

    Love love the colors in the carnival snow cone set. I haven’t tried nuno felting yet, but this might be the catalyst to try.

  27. Selissa P. on February 7, 2010 6:15 pm

    I love the vibrant colors! I have been wanting to try felting, so fun!

  29. Carla on February 7, 2010 8:20 pm

    I’ve never tried needle felting but would love to. Beautiful colors.

  30. Mary Ellen on February 7, 2010 8:45 pm

    Wool and silk – two of my faves! I have fulled sweaters and then added needle felting. I’ve also made felted purses – I would love to try my hand at a new kind of felting. hmm…. wool and silk……

  31. Carmen on February 7, 2010 8:56 pm

    The flowers are adorable. I would love to learn Nuno felting. I keep trying different fiber crafts, and so far I love them all!

  32. tanya Barrett on February 7, 2010 9:08 pm

    Me and my friend some some scarves at our local craft show, Ever since then I have really wanted to try it myself.

  33. adrian on February 7, 2010 9:12 pm

    I would like to try this b/c it would be new to me. I really like the Always in Bloom – One Custom Color Flower Hair Pin from her shop.

  34. Michele on February 7, 2010 9:15 pm

    I love needle felting. It helps to take out my frustration of our state budget cuts! Only in California do we have a movie star governor who TERMINATES services for the disabled and our senior citizens! Poke, poke, poke did I say poke?

  35. Heidi on February 7, 2010 9:25 pm

    Wonderful giveaway!
    I have decided that 2010 is my year to experiment in new mediums. Fiber art is at the top of that list. I am about to learn to spin with a drop spindle. I love wool roving. I dont actually know how to knit or crochet, so felting would probably be a smarter choice :D
    I am absolutely in LOVE with the
    Handmade Wool and Silk Nuno Felted Scarf Wrap in Pink, Orange, and Olive. I want to learn to make beautiful wearable art like that.

  36. Anna Lynn Martino on February 7, 2010 9:25 pm

    I took a needlefelting class last month and then started felting soap. I have been obsessed with finding roving and reading about felters. I discovered The Funky Felter’s shop during my many nights of finding as much information about felting as possible. It is really difficult to find roving. TheFunkyFelter’s shop is very inspirational for me. I love her heart rings and pendants. She makes me want to learn how to dye roving. I would really love the opportunity to try my hand at nuno felting. Thank you! Anna

  37. Elaine on February 7, 2010 9:40 pm

    Wow – what a fabulous giveaway!

  38. Heather on February 7, 2010 10:41 pm

    Hi Shalana! I think you know already that I absolutely love your scarf work, but this latest offering of dyed silks is…well…to ‘dye’ for! Grin. I’d love to get better at my nuno technique, so your give away would be perfect for me!

  39. monika on February 7, 2010 11:10 pm

    I am not sure where to leave my comment on Etsy.I am new to the needle felting but I am hooked already.I love the “Funky Felter Pile of Wool in 12 Colors” It would be so much fun to play with such a wonderful selection.What a generous giveaway,thank you!

  40. Connie Berlin on February 8, 2010 6:14 am

    Shalana, I love all of your creations – no surprise to you. I did one nuno workshop and I’m ready to try it again – just need a push in the right direction (which you always give). Thanks for giving us all another chance to experience creativity.

  41. Tricia on February 8, 2010 9:09 am

    I’m a novice at felting, but find it fascinating and fun. The vibrant colors in the Funky Felter’s shop are so inspiring!

  42. Anna Walker on February 8, 2010 9:24 am

    Since discovering felting last summer, I’ve been reading voraciously of all the felt techniques out there, and have attended Felt School at the Harveyville Project, where I got a chance to try my hand at Nuno…but I was too agressive and the fibers just peeled off. I have just tea dyed some cheesecloth, and plan to give Nuno another try…but would LOVE to win this package to really get my bearings with this technique. FELT ROCKS!

  43. Anna Ballinger on February 8, 2010 9:31 am

    I saw an article about needle felting in the Needle Arts magazine and just had to find out more about it. During my internet search I saw some soap and hat felting done. What an inspiration it was to me! I knew I just had to try it. After many internet searches I found Shalana’s site and loved what she had made with all the colorful wool roving. So I bought some for felting soap. What fun it was to make my first bar of felted soap! I’ve also started experimenting with free motion embroidery which could incorporate the Nuno fabric in such a beautiful way. Thank you to all who share their talents for others to learn.

  44. Jo on February 8, 2010 9:41 am

    I’ve done some beginning felting so would love to be inspired to practice more w/ new supplies!!

    At her site I thought everything looked well made & of course CUTE! I especially liked the sushi & spiral beads.

    I also visited her rubber stamp store & was equally impressed!

  45. Joyce Hazlerig on February 8, 2010 10:02 am

    I love Shalana’s simple yet profound beauty of her small felted items like the hearts… and I really love the swirl/sushi beads. My very favorite is the Nuno felted scarf in Ice blue and salmon.
    Have been needle felting for 2yrs now and just started getting into the wet felting. I started doing some flowers that came out really nice. I have a very small indoor working space so I’m waiting for warmer weather to try nuno felting.

  46. Laura on February 8, 2010 11:30 am

    I took a fibers class in college and it was probably my favorite art class I ever took. I’m sad to say I haven’t done anything like that since. I would love another chance to get my hands dirty with some felting!!! =)

  47. Kristi on February 8, 2010 11:39 am

    I’ve just started felting and Shalana was a big help in getting me started on a beginning felting kit. Thanks bunches.

  48. melissa on February 8, 2010 11:44 am

    i saw a tutorial for felted soap once and was always intrigued by felting in general. would love to win this and begin my felting adventures!

  49. Jen on February 8, 2010 11:48 am

    That orange pink olive nuno scarf is beautiful. Unfortunately I don’t have any experience with needle felting. I’ve knitted and then felted, but I have been wanting to try needle felting. I love that the funky felter has a basic starting kit at a very reasonable price. My fingers are crossed for this awesome giveaway!

  50. Catie on February 8, 2010 12:25 pm

    Hi there,
    Great shop – fabulous giveaway :)
    I want to be able to felt -especially after seeing your lovey creations
    Choose me PLEASE
    Love the many choices – a scarf has my first vote
    Cheers
    Catie

  51. Lowena on February 8, 2010 1:20 pm

    I always wanted to try out needle felting and it is one of the crafting techniques I would like to try for this year.

  52. Kristen on February 8, 2010 3:34 pm

    I’d love to try this!

  53. Lynn Tolles on February 8, 2010 4:33 pm

    I became intrigued with felting a couple of years ago and found Shalana’s shop, hearted it, found her website, signed up for her newsletter, and have kept up with her beautiful work. I love her nuno felt scarves best of all she offers. She inspired me to do some needle felting, but still haven’t had the money for materials to try the nuno. I’d love to win the supplies! You rock Shalana! (and it’s time to post some photos of that cute redheaded daughter!)

  54. Nikki Pacheco Theard on February 8, 2010 5:43 pm

    The vibrant colors of silk and wool invite’s one to begin crafting Nuno inspired creations. This process of using silk and wool together sounds wonderful.

  55. Cat Albaugh on February 8, 2010 7:13 pm

    I have wanted to learn this technique for a while now. I do needle felting, but this always interested me. I love scarves and it would be so fun to make my own with such lovely colors. I love Shalana’s shop. I think her rings are just the cutest idea. And her colors are so bright and vibrant.

  56. MelodyJ on February 8, 2010 8:52 pm

    I like Alaways In Bloom Pendants. I have a felting book. But have never felted so some supplies would get me started.

    urbanviolet(at)yahoo.com

  57. Lynn R on February 8, 2010 10:26 pm

    I just started to have interest in sewing. Never knew what is felting before but now I know.. and after checking Shalana’s website, makes me want to learn nuno felting. I really love those scarfs, especially the Triple Stripe Hand Felted Wool Scarf in Purple Tones. :)

  58. turtle on February 8, 2010 11:03 pm

    i have been expanding my felting by trying new ways of felting. Her scarves style is one i have not yet done!

  59. naughtyknots on February 9, 2010 7:32 am

    I love the little heart pendants. They’re so cute – and are perfect for Valentine’s Day ! What an interesting technique! I’m naughtyknots over on Rav. :)

  60. Rachel O on February 9, 2010 9:08 am

    So much beautiful color. Today’s my birthday to I’m feeling this is the right time to enter!

  61. Erica on February 9, 2010 11:15 am

    I am most captivated by the wool colors. I LOVE color and her colors are so vibrant and pretty. Gosh, I hope I win! Someone’s gonna be very lucky.

  62. KarenK on February 9, 2010 4:22 pm

    The beads really inspire me, loving the colors, the way the photo is taken plus all of the ideas that pop to mind that I could use them for!! I also love the salmon, silver, white scarf!! Yummy!! I have felted and have an embellisher so nuno felting would be a great addition to what I already do!

    Nuno felting has been on my must do list for ages. It would be a lovely change from needle felting aliens for sure!

  65. Andrea Kruse on February 10, 2010 12:19 pm

    It is all stunning! I have been dying to try Nuno felting but can’t budget in the supplies right now. I fell in love with the felt flower hair clips! Oh, the possibilities! The felted hearts were also just darling. I have small kiddos so I would want to make stuff for them.

  66. Pat Bollinger-Blanc on February 10, 2010 1:02 pm

    Nuno felting caught the eye of my friend and me. We are both nurses looking for a creative outlet from our stress and a way to make a personal fashion statement. Although because of our respective spouses’ salaries, we need to keep our jobs, we would love to have a small cottage industry and think this would be the way to go….and the hearts are awesome b/c we would want hearts to be in our signature pieces…We make a difference every day in our patient’s lives and we would like to do the same for ourselves.

  67. Dee on February 10, 2010 1:57 pm

    I’m learning to needlesculpt figures, and am becoming fascinating by felt in general, so I’d love to try this! The felted hearts in the shop lift my spirits with all the bright colors…

  68. Knittingdancer on Ravelry on February 10, 2010 2:19 pm

    I like the Sweetheart Hair Pins. I have done machine felting but never hand felting. I would love to try this.

  69. Cath on February 10, 2010 3:41 pm

    I’d love to try nuno felting because I live in a hot climate, but it sometimes gets a little cool at night. i think nun felt would be perfect for it.

  70. megan on February 10, 2010 11:04 pm

    I’ve wanted to try felting recently! I would love to make a neacklace from wool beads.

  71. Tanya on February 11, 2010 5:51 am

    Hi!
    I love felt, but always have wanted to try wet felting. I’ve seen an article about nuno felting but affraid to start doing it. Well, may be this contest will give me a push.
    I like this necklace,you made Shalana
    The Cherry’s Jubilee Necklace – bright red and white felted wool bead necklace.
    Keep on going! wishing you the best,
    Tanya

  72. katrina on February 11, 2010 6:30 am

    I love the heart barrettes and I just know my little princess would love the crown set. And all those beautiful colors. I’ve been wanting to try felting for awhile and I think those colors were the motivation I’ve been looking for.

  73. Jersey Jessie on February 11, 2010 7:42 am

    teaching my neighbor’s children too!
    they’re so excited . . .

  76. Laura on February 12, 2010 8:36 pm

    I must say Shalana’s colors capture the imagination and her creativity inspires…
    This collection would be a real boon to my collection (The nearly non-exisitant one from Hobby Lobby)to finish my “Wee Folks” fairy project for the “Seeing is Believing” Lions Club spring charity table–and then Nuno felt for Moi!!!!

  77. Erin on February 14, 2010 2:47 pm

    It is a tough call to choose a favourite item from some much joyful work. At a push I would also choose the flower hair pins.
    I would love to receive the kit and start Nuno felting as I have spring fever and am longing to create something beautiful.

    p.s I couldn’t link to your rubberstamping site from your etsy shop.

  79. Tongue In Chic Design on February 15, 2010 11:50 pm

    I love the triple stripe scarves, but the kits were especially useful for me. I am a professional fashion designer and am just discovering Nuno felting. I love learning new techniques to add drama and dimension to my work. My favorite aspect to nuno felting is the way it loosely integrates, but does not obscure, your base fabric, then shrinks, giving you fabric a gorgeous rippled effect. I do not have any Nuno supplies yet, but am just dying (small pun) to try it out and see how it can help me take my garments to the next level.

  80. Mary Ellen on February 16, 2010 12:51 pm

    I just finished reading Uniquely Felt by Christine White to review it for my website. There is a large post-it note marking page 214 for Nuno Scarves. I have several needle felting projects started now but the very next thing will be Nuno felting to create a unique scarf with depth of color and exciting textures. I would like to create a scarf that coordinates with my hats but is not matchy. By the way, anyone who wins this might want to check Uniquely Felt, especially for the description of scrolling (p.215) for anyone short of space to spread out their project.

  81. Mary Shelley on February 16, 2010 10:05 pm

    The first thing that jumped out at me from her shop was the colours! They are beautiful and really caught my attention , They made me want to create .I loved Funky Felter Felted Woolly Soap Kit for Beginners as well as the adorable heart felted berets and pendants . The silk is exquisite! As you can see it is hard for me to pick just one favorite from this shop
    Thank you for the opportunity :)

  82. RobynElfie on February 17, 2010 2:30 pm

    OK I went to the shop and entered the contest. It is a very hard shop to leave! So many gorgeous choices mmm delightful stuff :)
    The scarves are so beautiful – who would love a new nuno scarf? I want to win the kit so I can learn how to make lovely gifts for my friends and family.

  83. Loretta on February 17, 2010 7:21 pm

    I found the funky felter on ravelry discussing green dyes!
    I’ve been keeping my eye out for some sort of nuno ‘kit’- something that would have all the bits to get me started and let me see and feel what I need. Because I’m sure once I get started, I’ve got what I need around here!!

  84. angie on February 18, 2010 6:36 am

    I have always wanted to try felting, especially after getting into the local craft/arts scene and seeing all the possibilities! I love the

  85. scott on February 18, 2010 6:37 am

    I am a knitter and have already worked in felting and LOVE it! That is why I want to win this so badly! As far as her site goes, I love the Funky Felter Pile of Wool in 12 Colors.

  86. Julia on February 19, 2010 12:26 am

    I love textile crafts, my mom is a spinner, weaver and knitter, and I do mostly knitting, sewing and embroidery. I’ve tried some simple felting and I’d really like to try this, silk and wool are very nice together. The little felted hearts are very cute, and the hand dyed silks are lovely.

  87. Pat on February 19, 2010 7:57 am

    Felting is one area that I have been wanting to start, but haven’t because I was intimidated. Now, after looking at this website, I would love to learn. Fantastic stuff!

  88. patti on February 19, 2010 7:20 pm

    I have been researching felting for weeks when I found your great blog and if I won this I could finally start a project.The scarf on Funky felter inspires me to start.

  89. luxiii on February 19, 2010 7:43 pm

    Her felted hearts are adorable. If you go on her blog she has 30% off through the weekend! I am just starting to learn how to felt and would love to work with the various colors she offers.

    I would love to try this. I have recently started seeing kits and supplies for felting popping up everywhere online. I hope that the Funky Felter is back soon — her etsy shop is down…hope everything is going ok with her!

    thanks for the giveaway.

Wow the colors “pop” leaving me filled with inspiration this spring to create many new things… I will be purchasing from her shop now! I frequent etsy for supplies (as well as several friends)but now i’ve a new source! thanks! can’t wait to get my crafty little hands on her stuff!
