Nuno Felting Fun

Been doing a bit more Nuno felting. This time I felted silk loom ends that I stock (Nuno Details). These create the most fantastic surfaces for stitch. Check this out below.

Nuno Felt

Instead of the silk becoming the back as in traditional Nuno, by using silk loom ends the back is the front of the piece. The zari threads add a touch of opulence and sparkle so this piece really catches the light. Nuno felt is made like usual felt but with silk as part of the base. It’s great to stitch on (see my Kantha piece) and a delight to touch.

The back of the piece has wool on it as per usual.

But is nothing compared to the glory of the silk side!
