Due to hand-cutting, the dimensions may not be exactly as you choose, but we always strive to cut slightly more. Before crafting, remember to unroll the fabric on a flat surface and allow it to rest or stretch after transportation or folding. You can also use steam ironing to help the fabric achieve maximum smoothness.

Instructions for felting a scarf (photos 3-7) - suitable for beginners to professionals:

  • Cut the desired prefelt piece, keeping in mind that it will shrink during felting. Feel free to decorate it as desired.
  • Lay it on a bubble wrap and spray it with soapy water. For easier handling, you can wrap the prefelt and bubble wrap around a firm object (wooden or plastic dowel, PVC pipe, etc.).
  • Carefully fold it into a roll with the bubble wrap and roll it 15-20 times. Smooth out any wrinkles diligently.
  • Rotate your piece 90 degrees, then roll it again for another 15-20 times. Unroll, check, and adjust, smoothing out any wrinkles as needed.
  • Rotate your piece another 90 degrees, then roll again for 30-40 times. Unroll, check, and adjust.
  • Repeat this process until your scarf reaches the desired felting level and size.
  • Gently rinse with wool washing agents, squeeze out excess water, steam iron, and lay flat to dry.

You can also create a two-tone scarf by felting together two different colors of prefelt. Experiment with appliqués, silk, threads, or other compatible fibers to add unique embellishments to your creations.
