From giant suri monster
to nuno felted suri stole.
The fabric was from the clearance rack, purchased several years ago. To do this properly, I should have used a silk or cotton voile base fabric. The suri fiber would enmesh right into the base. In this case, I think the base fabric was too tightly woven, and is probably polyester or rayon or something. Or maybe I didn't felt it enough. The suri itself felted, but it didn't stick to the fabric very well. I think I might be able to peel the suri away in one piece if I wanted to. However, I grabbed my felting needles, and needle felted it in strategic areas so that it did stick. Yesterday, the wind was coming from the right direction that I just held the stole up and the wind held it on the fence.
It is very light and drapey, and the suri glows with luster.
Edited to add: Yeehaaaa! I just found out that I get to go kayaking in Ventura on Saturday if it isn't too windy.
