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).
