Wet Felted Frilly Scarf With Extra Frills

IMG_6203

I did say that I was going to make frilly scarves in all the colors.  This time I went for my brightest greens.  I actually don’t have much green left and I need to resist the urge to purchase more!

As you can see, I have added an extra layer of frills.  I did work over a resist and it was a bit tricky and rather time consuming.  I still need to work out how to perfect this technique as I am not 100% happy with the density of the center of the scarf.  However, it is coming to me as I write.  I originally wanted to make a slender scarf with frills, but that is going to require more planning and practice.  This is the main side of the scarf.  I had my bling fibers on one side and my viscose only on the edges on the other side.

I love the colors of the sari silk fibers against the green.  Here is what it looks like on the other side.

This side is more subtle, but I prefer the more colorful side.

IMG_6213 Here is another close-up.  You can see how lacy the frills are.  I really like how they turned out.  I have enough green in these colors to make another single frilled scarf, so will be having another go with that.  This one is the heaviest so far weighing in at 109g.  That is still quite light when you consider that a ball of roving is 100g and a single frilled scarf has been coming in on average (approximately) at 70g.
