HISTORY OF NUNOFELT/NUNOFELTDESIGNS, THE BLOG AND THE BOOKS!

Nuno felting is a new, very intricate fiberart technique for felting onto silk, silk crepe and cotton voile, to create a brand new fabric with textures and designs that are almost like glass-making. The final design depends on what happens during the wet-felting process, which can take several hours to complete.

The intense colors in all nuno-fabric designs are created by the 40% shrinkage that takes place during felting.

All of my designs start out with silk, crepe or cotton voile that is first hand-dyed using a cold water, non-toxic process, and might then be handpainted or tie-dyed one design at a time.

Each nuno felted scarf, wrap, garment, bag, vase and vessel is individually designed and felted, and can take 2-3 days to finish up all the fine details.

Don't let the word "felt" fool you; nuno felted scarves, wraps and garments are for every season of the year. My Spring and Summer designs are felted with 20% to up to 60% BAMBOO and silk fibers (mixed into 100% merino wool and other wool fibers), which make the scarves light and suitable for warmer temperatures. There is no other nuno-felter that I know of who uses Bamboo Fibers in their designs.

My Winter Nunos are created with up to 60% REAL CASHMERE.  They sell out every year when they start popping up in my online stores from September to December every year. 

These Nuno Scarves are extremely easy to care for. Handwash, line dry, perhaps a hot iron, is all you need. Light and airy, they travel well and can be rolled into a tiny package for your suitcase.  They make the perfect "green" gift because no chemicals are used in making them and the water and soap felting technique means they are all handwashable.

They are an incredible accent to any outfit, but really pop on that essential little black dress. Wearable art that will start a lot of conversations--because the more you look at them, the more you see.

In business for 9 years, Nunofelt has sold over 10 thousand designs online, at craft shows and special events, and in galleries and boutiques.

BOOKS BY NUNOFELT & HISTORY OF the BLOG

The blog began 3 years ago to share details and lots of secrets about making nuno felt which include techniques, where to find supplies, what's new and what's hot in nuno felting.

The blog has over 350 regular daily readers!  

Since nuno felting techniques - which include using portable sanders and felt rolling machines - are changing so quickly, I started to compile hundreds of blog posts into books/ebooks to make them available to nuno felters who are trying to improve and expand their skills.  

Two books contain all of these posts:
Nuno Felting Tips & Tricks - Second Edition
ALL NEW Nuno Felting Mini-Projects Book

Both are available in print, for your Kindle, Nook and iPad.
