Krgyz style Nuno Felting

Softest white silk, and delicate wisps of merino wool, diligent soft and firmly worked into silk, only to be wildly thrown onto the table in a bundle!

See for yourself in the photoalbum from picture 48 until picture 93 how the different stages unfolded.

A very big thanks to Shirin for taking us as guinea pigs to practise her facilitation skills on! It is a huge challenge to handle all the practicalities from bubble wrap buying and later drying out again, from transporting the silk from Usbekistan (thanks, Matthew!) to washing the towels, and it is so much more fun to tackle it as a group in a firelit cosy room.
Even when one runs over time but luckily can evacuate the stragglers into the smaller room #2 for the final  touches:
When the silk is dry, we still need to hunt down one or the other lady to let us take a picture of her in her new shawl!
