A popular Uzbek name meaning radiant, this aptly named wrap is sure to get you noticed, whatever you wear it with.  It was fashioned from lustrous margilan silk gauze, superfine merino wool, and silk fibers. All were custom dyed with professional wash-fast dyes in a beautiful lapis blue and green. Iron with steam for a smooth and shiny look (as shown) or leave it unironed for a more textured look and feel.

 

Margilan silk is made in the small Uzbek town of the same name.  The open weave and unparalleled softness lend this luxurious wrap a beautiful drape and a lacy texture. The piece measures a generous 77" long by 10" wide (296 cm by 23 cm).

Felting is a time- and labor-intensive process.  Wool fibers are laid out in fine layers, wetted with warm soapy water, and gently agitated until the fibers tangle together.  In the case of NUNO FELTING, the fibers work their way through silk or other fabric.  Continued agitation causes the fibers to shrink down, puckering the silk and forming a sturdy and durable fabric.  The scarf can be hand washed in lukewarm water with a mild detergent.  After rinsing, excess water can be squeezed from the scarf by wrapping it in a clean towel.  Then hang or dry flat and press with a warm iron.
