Most of hand the scarves made are created using nuno felting process. Very small amount of merino wool are carefully placed on recycled silk, chiffon, or cotton. The materials are heated, soaped, and scrubbed causing the wool fibers to migrate through the weave of the cloth and bond together creating garments that are lightweight and drape beautifully on the body to wear all season long. They also use the traditional wet felted technique, the oldest form of fabric making.
