Kool-Aid dyed ponge silk and merino roving = nuno felted scarf!

Kool-Aid dyed ponge silk and merino roving = nuno felted scarf!

Yesterday I spent almost all day dying merino roving and ponge silk in the microwave using a variety of Kool-Aid colours/flavours, check out my Facebook page to see some pictures of the work in progress.  Although I am not going to go through a step by step discussion of what I did here tonight (still a couple of leaves to felt before I head off to bed, more another day!) I will leave you with a close up shot of the nuno scarf I felted yesterday evening.  I just couldn’t go to bed last night without getting my hands stuck into all that yummy coloured fibre now, could I???  I also felted an optional flower brooch to compliment this scarf and as soon as out weather picks up a little I’m going to take some photos of them as I want to upload it to the internet for sale, my shop has been totally quiet for far too long now!

Surprisingly subtle colours in the finished nuno felt scarf

    There must be Kool-Aid in Ireland! It’s an American powdered drink that some folks mix with sugar and water for their kids. It ends up being kind of like what’s called ‘squash’ in the UK. (An American living in Norwich, UK)
