Puff magic


Before with marbles in place ready for felting


Lightly felted and so very light, 25 grams

My Angel Puff Scarf is complete. I am really happy how this turned out using Naturally Mist yarn which is a 1ply lace weight 80% super fine kid mohair and 20% acrylic yarn made in New Zealand and is around $7 rather than $20 odd for Rowan Kidsilk. I knitted with 4mm needles and it turned out quite a bit smaller than the pattern stated, not sure if it was the yarn or me! Anyway I decided to use less puffs of a smaller size than a macadamia nut and not felt it as much as the original so the scarf might end up being a useful size. So this morning I placed 30 vase marbles in a regular pattern on the lower edges of my scarf and secured them with 30 clear snagless hair elastics and felted the scarf in the washing machine with a pair of jeans for agitation, it took about 15 minutes to felt. I think the Lady with the Lamp really likes this heavenly little neck warmer.
For those who need to know this is shade 602 which doesn't seem to be a current colour on Naturally's page.

How gorgeous!! I am just knitting the scarf and I was a bit worried but you have soothed my fears. I think I am just going to buy another ball of the mohair I used and mine won;t be long enough with one ball.
