Outlander Bluebell Silk Art Scarf #3 - OOAK Cobweb Felt - FREE SHIPPING F05
In the Outlander television series, Claire Randall goes back to the Standing Stones at Crag na Dun to find the wee blue flowers she saw there with Frank. It was during this fateful trip, she touched the stone and was transported back in time 200 years, to Jamie Fraser's time. Although the flowers were not named but only described in the books, they do fit the description of the Scottish Bluebell flower, also known as Harebells, or Fairies' Thimbles as well as Heath Bells because they are often found growing alongside heath in the wild. These flowers are native to the area near the Standing Stones.
"Some say the hill is enchanted, others say it is cursed. Both are right."
~~~Claire in Dragonfly from Dragonfly in Amber, Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon
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. The costumes on the Outlander series have included several felted garments. Cobweb felt is a decorative, lacy, lightweight fabric made with softness and drape. Art and function meld together in thin felt with natural holes, curls of wool, and almost transparent areas, all part of its beauty.
Using,various types of wool, mohair, bamboo, silk, sari threads, shiny fiber, and locks of long haired curly sheep, I very thinly layer the all of these to create for you a unique one of a kind cobweb felted wrap or shawl. Look closely at the photographs to see if you can spy all the different fibers and materials. I use the same type of materials in each shawl but each shawl is unique due to the nature of felting. Your awesome scarf or shawl will be very similar to the pictures but unique! The edges of this piece are very organic while the surface is uniquely textured with the numerous types of fiber I used and is a one-of-a-kind (OOAK) treasure.
After hand felting this lovely piece, I feel it will be perfect to wrap about your shoulders, neck or head when the cool breeze wafts down from the Scottish hills. The color is are brilliant blues, white and a wee bit of silver, exactly the colors found in bluebells sparkling with the early morning dew.
For yourself or the Outlander fan in your life!
