Outlander Claire's Paris Felt Silk Scarf or Shawl -Pink - Cobweb Felt - FREE SHIPPING F03
Amongst the swirling ball gowns of lace, ruffles, silk and satin of Paris that Claire and Jamie experienced in Dragonfly in Amber, (the second book of the Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon), I found inspiration for the one of a kind (OOAK) original felted art scarf.
Felting is the very first method mankind began making fabric, beginning centuries prior to the time period of Outlander. In fact, highly sophisticated felted artifacts were found preserved in permafrost in a tomb in Siberia and dated to 600 AD.
On the Outlander television show, Gellis Duncan wore several garments that were felted. Cobweb felt is a decorative, lacy, lightweight fabric made with softness and drape. Art and function meld together in very thin felt with natural holes and almost transparent areas, all part of its beauty. The edges of this piece are very organic while the surface is uniquely textured with the numerous types of fiber I used (Various types of wool, mohair, bamboo, silk, sari threads, shiny fiber, and locks of long haired sheep were used.) Look closely at the photos to see the uniqueness of this wearable art. Since each piece is one-of-a-kind (OOAK) that I create, your scarf/shawl will be very similar, just as beautiful.
After hand felting this piece, It is a generous size, perfect to wrap about your shoulders or head when the cool breeze wafts down from the Scottish hills. For yourself or the Outlander fan in your life!
