Handmade Merino wool and Silk Numo Cowls

numo merino cowl class
Date Published: July 28, 2021

These cowls are made with merino wool and silk using a technique known as Numo felting.  Creating the cowls involves building up layers of wool either overlaying silk fabric or including  the silk in a layer, plus other lovely embellishments .  The processes involve  wet felting and fulling the wool.  As each cowl is l individually made by hand each is unique. Wool and silk are natural insulators helping to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. Being versatile they can be worn as ear warmers or neck warmers.

I will be exhibiting and selling the Cowls at the Bluebell  Barn, Arlington  on the 18th and 19th September

Miniature wool paintings

Approximately 5 inches square. A mixture of wet and needle felt techniques. I use wool as a painter uses paint. They are full of movement and many different colour fibres. Using lots of different shades of one colour helps to create the hue that I am trying to achieve. Unlike paint when mixing blue and yellow will make green and adding white will lighten wools don’t change colour they have to be patiently and carefully blended. I find this a very magical and relaxing. Each painting has many layers of wool added either by wet or needle felting. This is a process that takes time.
