Nuno felted & eco printed shawl 植染羊毛混絲披肩

The other day I bought a new piece of fabric.  The shop owner said it's silk but it looks like wool.  It doesn't matter as long it felts it works for me as I just want to try eco printing.  
Ahhhhh...... it works and a shawl is made..........
日前在布行買了一塊很特別的料子, 老闆說是新到的絲料, 但我看似是羊毛料, 沒關係罷, 我祗是想做羊毛氈化後再做植物印染, 經過一輪手作, 果然好特別的效果, 那料子我做了兩件披肩, 一大一小, 這個冬天可有用場了.

This is the fabric looks like hemp. I cut diagonal two pieces, one big and one small. Then layered merino wool and some curly fleece around the edge,

After "rock n roll", I finished the nuno felt shawl.

Immediately I put some euc and rose leaves for bundle boiling.

Here it came the prints.  "Before and after" to show details.........

Quite bold and clear with shades.

The fabric is not as soft as silk but the texture is good for a shawl.

I used a l little curly fleece to add the wild look.

Thought it's good.

Two pieces of shawl, the small one I cut a hole and slip the other end in (the left pic).
                               The bigger one (the right) is fine for wrapping around.

                                     With cold days approaching the shawl is  warm for my casual wear. 
     If not, fluffy Mogi gives me warmth.  


  1. Beautiful and you wear it so well!

  2. Love it! It is one in a million, very boutique.

  3. It is still 25th of October here, but the shawl is magnifique ! Congrats :)

  4. I bet your Mogi is warm to cuddle with. He is so beautiful. I wonder if there are things that can be made with his cat hair, when you brush him? This new fabric is different from your usual purchase. maybe it will soften in time with wear. It does look good on you, just right for those cold and chilly days when we need a little something to warm us up. The first and last thing I see every day now is the beautiful scarf you made me. It is on my dress form Ella and she is right next to my bed. I can not wait to wear it my next time going out to dinner or some place special. I could wear it to church this Sunday, that would be good too.
