Felt Making and Wool Fibres
Fabrics by the metre for nuno felting - Organic Fine Wool Etamine - prewashed
Fine 100% organic merino wool with a GOTS certificate, in a natural cream shade. 105g/m
This fabric is designed to shrink if needed at 50-60'C, so is ideal for use with wool fibres for felting. This fine wool is great for shibori techniques.
It will take steam-fix and Acid dyes, and is great for cosy scarves - no need to hem, just leave a finely frayed edge to make a fringe. It also makes a lovely warm lining for garments.
Many of our customers are making their own scarves from this fabric. An ideal size is 180 x 40/45cm, with the short edges unsewn and fringed, and the long edges hand-hemmed - as in the photo. You could also machine hem, or leave all edges raw and take out a few rows of thread to make a fringe. If you purchase 2 metres you could get 3 long scarves of this size from the piece.
