United in Felt - Nuno Felted Seamless Scarf Collars

I love these new capelets or should I call them shawls or how about one piece scarf collars.  

These seamless nuno felted...OK, let's go with scarf collars, are made using a resist and various textiles and fibers that I have bought on my extensive travels such as the mulberry paper from Laos and the wool roving from DHG in Italy. Some of the items, I purchased on-line or bought locally like the recycled silk sari ribbon from India, the Habu stainless steel yarns from Japan, the silkworm cocoons from Thailand, wool from Ireland, and the new and up-cycled textiles sourced in the USA.  

With all the trouble in the world these days, it's a small bit of bliss to see items from around the world come together and meld as one through the felt making process, hence, I'm calling this grouping "United in Felt"

Work in progress using a resist to create a seamless garment.
