Nuno felted scarf - Great Barrier Reef Blue Merino

This year I have made several scarves as custom orders for different people. This one turned out really nice.
I measure the habotai silk out and fold over the sides about two inches. I use a spray bottle to wet it as I am turning the sides so it stays in place. Placing the merino wool on the edge of the fold so that the silk will ruffle on the edges and the seam is hidden.  The inside of the silk gets the design.
It then gets wetted down with soapy water and rolled up. I put it on the rolling machine for about 15 to 30 minutes and take it off to finish it by hand.

The new owner of this scarf liked it quite a bit.  I have another scarf I need to begin working on next week for another person and am thinking of what design to use in the center.
