     Felted Art Care & Washing Instructions

Wool has natural properties built in to resist dirt and dust but occasionally, your Felted Scarf Art items may need some extra care.  Below are the care and washing instructions for each of my products.

All are hand washable in warm to cool water (not cold or hot!), gentle soap, no agitation, no machines.  Once wetted again, the shape is finalized by gently shaping the fibers by hand, over a glass, a bowl, box, or by padding with plastic filler to 'block' the shape until dry.  

The Scarf Art items may look delicate but with proper care they will last for many years. 

To find out more information, see in person, or purchase any Felted Art,

Care and Washing instructions for Wool & Silk Nuno Felted Scarves by Lynda

Scarves: 

This uniquely handcrafted scarf combines Wool fibers and/or Silk/cotton gauze to create a great fashion style while keeping you warm. Although the scarf may look delicate, it is durable and strong.

 

The scarf needs to be gently hand washed in cool water with a mild detergent (such as Woolite ®). After rinsing, excess water can be removed from the scarf by wrapping it in a clean towel and patting it to absorbe excess water. Gently shape the width and length then hang or dry flat. Optionally you can steam, not press, with a warm iron on silk/wool setting.

 

Do NOT use a clothes washer or dryer.
