  • I love the effect of light shining through felt - and especially, nuno felt. All the wrinkles and ripples and pleats and squigly bits give incredible depth and intricacy to the fabric.


    This is a lampshade I made recently using undyed 5mm habotai silk which I nuno felted with lots of different fibres to build up the texture - throwsters waste, wool and silk neps, silk threads, mulberry silk ... just about everything I could find in my stash!


    Once I'd made the fabric, I used a drum shade kit and assembled it without too much trouble, although the silk is delicate, and the uneven thickness made the finishing a bit tricky. But I'm really pleased with the outcome!
