This vest, designed and made by Maria was inspired by Spring and summer.This unique purple reversible vest is handmade with nuno felted technique.
Nuno felting: that involves felting loose wool fiber into cloth usually silk.The fiber travels through the weave of the cloth and entangles on the back side: as the fibers shrink, a strongly textured felt/fabric hybrid is generated. This technique called laminated felting in Europe.
This wonderfully soft merino felt vest will keep you warm. The vest design is one of a kind completely handmade in a nonsmoking environment.The vest was constructed with 2 layers of wool and the basic was hand dyed silk. Hand- dyed silk can be hard to find so it’s easier to choose the silk color first, then select the wool to match. Most of the wool is dyed by me too. I work with natural materials and use water and soap. The wool shrink about 40 % the silk does not, in this case, become an extraordinary amazing texture of the vest.
Materiall are silk and fine Australian Merino wool. This vest is reversible.
Easy to care. For better result and long lasting quality of the garment; hand wash uses cold water and hair shampoo. Squeeze the water out in a towel. Reshape, lay flat to dry. Don’t use tumble dry. Don’t iron.
