We have all the fibers and fabrics you need to make fabulous garments and accessories. In addition to this habotai silk fabric, Outback Fibers also sells dyed silk gauze / tissue silk fabric to coordinate with our superfine space dyed merino. Our fabrics allow you to produce incredible results for your Nuno felting projects. Have a look at our very open weave silk gauze called Butterfly Silk Fabric.
What is Nuno Felting? It is the technique of layering very small amounts of wool onto a woven fabric. The base fabric is usually silk or cotton. Through the felting process, the wool fiber migrates through the fabric. As the normal shrinkage from the felting process takes place, the fabric is ruched, creating unique textures in the finished product. Our kits provide enough wool to make an open design on the fabric leaving windows of silk fabric with no covering. To entirely cover or "laminate" the silk fabric will require more wool than is provided in this kit.
Our Outback Neck-Knack Silk Fabric features fine habotai / paj silk fabric to match our line of superfine space dyed Merino Harmonies wool fiber available in stunning complementary colorways.
Neck-Knack Kits are prepackaged kits containing silk fabric, Merino wool, and clear instructions to create a beautiful scarf.
