We love nuno felting with these silk fabrics from vintage saris! If you have tried our Sari Party packs of small cuts, you might like these as well! We have hand selected gorgeous 100% Silk Saris and cut them into long lengths. Each pack is a curated assortment of 3 different sari silk fabrics measuring approximately 11"W x 96"+L. Some will measure 108" or more in length. These lengths seem well suited for making scarves and of course, that made us think of wearing them to a soiree!
*Make sure to test all fabrics for use in Nuno felting.

*A NOTE ON COLORS/DESIGNS IN YOUR PACK - Please consider these "grab bags" and mixed lots, that may have a few surprises. Each Sari is categorized by the main color of the fabric, or the overall color temperature and feeling, however, colors and patterns often shift across a sari. Patterns may change to a solid color, colors may shift from one to another. As a result, you may get a color that does not seem to fit, such as a green inside the warm tones. Thank you for understanding... and we hope you love them!
This pack includes a variety of delicious embellishment fibers in notes of light, medium and dark blues.
**A FEW NOTES ON NUNO FELTING WITH SILK SARIS -
- Felt with room temperature water (not hot). This helps give the fibers time to migrate into the fabric, vs. felting to themselves.
- We suggest testing your silks and fiber combinations to understand how they felt together.
- Some fabrics are thicker and may require more patience and felting time.
- Thicker fabrics may benefit from having the edges trimmed with wool fibers to help them adhere.
- Thicker areas such as brocades and selvages may not felt well, consider testing them first or trimming them off and using as an add on or in other sewing projects, and junk journals.
- If needed you can add a basting stitch with thread once you reach the prefelt stage or stitch down unfelted fabrics after felting is completed. If this is required, have fun with it and make them decorative! But we suggest not giving up on the felting too soon ;)
- Colors may bleed. These saris have had a full life, they may have been over-dyed by a previous owner, or may not be stable with your soap. Keep this in mind when choosing a base fiber, and in protecting your workspace and clothes.
