Scarf Heaven

Scarves are such a fashion statement these days,
 but I bet you've never had one like these!

These nuno felted scarves, which were for sale at StreetFest last month,
 are made by placing wool on another material such as silk, cotton gauze or tulle
 and "beating the ever livin' stew out of the wool," according to artist/designer
 A.C. Reeves. Reeves says it's a "crazy process," and she also likes to work "scraps
" of "a little something special" into the design. So, you might find pieces
 of vintage quilts, cocktail napkins or whatever happens
 to be "floating around" in the design.
