How do I care for my felted scarf or table runner?

Felted fabric may be hand washed in cool water with gentle soap, rinse thoroughly with cool water, gently squeeze (don't ring aggressively), roll in a towel to take out more moisture. Lay flat to dry, reshape as necessary. Press on the wool/silk steam setting, use a pressing cloth if desired.  Refer to any specific instructions for the item you purchased.
Do Not Use a washing machine or dryer as this will cause additional shrinkage or change to shape.
How do I care for my home décor pillows?
Remove the pillow insert if an option. Use a clean cloth damp with cool water solution with a mild soap to dab on the area to be cleaned.  Then dab with a cloth with only cool water to 'rinse'.  Blot with a towel to remove excess moisture. Lay flat to dry. You may iron on wool/silk setting, use a cotton sheet as a pressing cloth. 

 

How is wool felt fabric made?

Wet felting is the process of using water, soap, and agitation to entangle and bond wool fibers permanently together into a solid felt material.
Nuno felt: The word "nuno" is Japanese for cloth and refers to entangling wool fibers and another cloth material together through the wet-felting process. Natural and open-weave materials work best for nuno felting such as silk.
