Supplies
Soft scarf, synthetic or silk; it will shrink about 30%
Multi-needle felting tool or felting machine
2" foam pad (unless you're using the machine)
Merino wool fibers, novelty fibers, yarns
Large pot or aluminum roasting pan

Instructions
Note: Similar to traditional nuno-felting, this technique is great for those who have some physical limitations such as arthritis. Note that it can cause some distress in some fabrics, such as fine silks.

  1. Lay scarf on a 2" foam pad right side up.
  2. Lay out fibers in a pleasing design; be sure to leave some space between fibers to allow for shrinkage. It's fine to plan your design, but if using long lengths of fibers or yarns, just needle-felt them in smaller sections, as they may shrink in length as they're being felted.
  3. Use a multi-needle felting tool to push and poke the fibers into the scarf, beginning at one end, and working your way to the other end. Note that the barbed felting needles may distress finer fabrics. If using a felting machine, you won't need the foam pad.
  4. Tips: Always needle-felt straight up and down; poking at an angle can cause your needles to bend and break. Also, don't lay out your fibers too thick, another needle-breaker.
  5. When your design is needle-felted and the fibers are showing up good on the under-side of the scarf, it's time to shrink the wool! Transfer the scarf to a pot or large aluminum roasting pan. Pour very hot (almost boiling) water over the scarf and agitate for a few minutes. When the water cools, pour it off and add fresh hot water and agitate. Continue doing this until the fibers have shrunk, the scarf is textured and you're pleased with the size and results.
  6. Squeeze out excess water; lay scarf out flat on a towel to dry.
  7. Hand-wash scarf to clean; dry flat.
