Adding Puffs To The Angel Puff Scarf

I used rubber bands to secure small marbles to make the puffs for this scarf. I washed the scarf by hand in hot tap water and dish soap in a large bowl. I agitated and rubbed the scarf to force the felting and shocked it with a cold water rinse. At that point, I determined that more felting was needed and repeated the process, adding a little hair conditioner in the last rinse. A few of the marbles along the edges fell out few times during the felting. I just secured them back in the fabric with the rubber bands. The scarf in now pinned and drying on a towel on the living room carpet. The picture to the left shows the scarf before felting.

joanne, do you have any of your silken kydd in orchid left? I've been knitting a dress in it since December and am realizing I may be running out. Please contact me, I'd love to buy it off you. Thanks!
