Wonderful Nuno Felting Technique by Raya Brown

Wonderful Nuno Felting technique !  I love it!  

This is a relatively new technique discovered by an Australian Artist Polly Sterling and a Japanese Artist Tashiko Kotakko. 

The term derives from a Japanese word NUNO which means fabric.  This is about combining wool and fabric together.  I love this technique which allows me to achieve amazing textures and create strong and wearable felt.

I love combining silk fabric and merino wool. This is my latest project- a bespoke Nuno Felted shawl (double sided) which I made for my friend Sheila for her special Birthday.
