Nuno felted poncho

Last month I took delivery of some black silk chiffon printed with abstract flowers, I had a plan. Once Woolfest was over I found a chance to turn it into the poncho I’d been planning. I forwent tasselling or fringing as I thought it would distract from the striking design on the silk.

I’m really very pleased with how this turned out. I didn’t think about the placing of the pattern on the points and which should hang where(oops)  but it hasn’t worked out badly at all and I love the pattern across the chest. The main colour of the fabric looks purple beacuse of the Fuchsia and Bright Pink Merino that I used on the reverse.

Better by far that items are reversible whenever possible as it gives you the greatest flexibility and opportunities to wear. I covered the Merino with some gold Mulberry silk, all available from Adelaide Walker.

There’ll be more of these to come, there are several fighting in my head for release so I need to get to it quite soon! These are so much fun I’ve added a new workshop on Thursday 27th September which you can book here.
