Outback Fibers imports silk fabric from Treetops Colour Harmonies in Australia. We also import Margilan silk fabric from Uzbekistan in very light weights. 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 and silk mesh 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 Margilan silk gauze that we call 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 pulled, creating unique textures in the product. This process is also called "laminated felt"
Our Outback Neck-Knack Kits feature fine habotai and silk gauze silk fabric to match our line of superfine space dyed Merino Harmonies wool fiber available in stunning complementary colorways.
Habotai Neck-Knack Kits or Silk Gauze / Tissue Silk Neck-Knack Kits are prepackaged kits containing silk fabric, Merino wool, and clear instructions to create a beautiful scarf.
