Trelis scarf made from merino felted wool
This beautiful felted scarf is made by self taught artist and former children's clothing designer, Elizabeth Rubidge, who refers to her felted scarves as 'Warm Jewelry'.
Rubidge was inspired to become a felter 3 years ago, after receiving a felted scarf as a gift from a friend whose mother had been felting all her life on a German sheep farm. Rubidge says, "My friend said that when I saw the scarf, my face changed. I went home and 'googled' felted scarves and artists. I read everything I could about felting. Havng worked in textiles for over 20 years, I understood what I could do with felt. I knew that I could do something different....
Different indeed. I love the checkered pattern of this scarf with the colorful hand-rolled roses and hand formed leaves. You can see more gorgeous scarves by Elizabeth Rubidge at the Artful Home or her website, The Felted Garden.
