Hauli silk has a beautiful texture to it that gives it a nubby texture when nuno-felted. It takes up dye very nicely too! I tied this piece of hauli silk using a technique called shibori which gives the beautiful pattern. The piece was then dyes in an indigo vat and the tied portions acted like resists creating the pattern. I chose to nuno-felt the piece with a beautiful rich brown wool and silk roving that makes the the scarf so very soft against the skin.
