Felted Scarves & Accessories

I am a self-taught fiber artist. I live in the capital of Russia – Moscow, with my husband and cat Tigra.

The most attractive in felting for me is absence of any restrictions, models and standards – just follow your imagination and enjoy process!

My favorite technique is nuno felting because it offers such potential in producing a variety and richness of texture.  I make all of my items with use of the best materials only, such as extra fine Australian merino wool (maximum is 18,5 mic. – a low count of micron is more suited to items worn next to the skin since it doesn’t ‘prickle’), cashmere, silk, tencel, bamboo and many-many others from all over the world.

Where do I get my inspiration? I have tried many times to answer to this question … the inspiration comes by itself, I take the wool in my hands, I touch it, breathe in its smell, look over different colors and an image of the future product appears before my eyes.

My mission is to attract people’s attention to unique and beautiful handmade accessories 🙂
