How to Nuno-Felt

Photo: Jack Deutsch

"Nuno-felting" is the act of merging wool fibers with silk fabric. The process produces a soft, luxurious, texture-rich felt fabric from which I've made everything from scarves to wedding dresses. You can also nuno-felt seamless garments. Instead of laying a pattern out on the fabric and cutting around it, you can make a pattern out of a plastic sheet and felt around it. Simply mix silk and wool, add water, and blend. Here, Linda Veilleux demonstrates the art of nuno-felting.
