Sweet violets are steeped in history and folklore, prized for their fragrance and medicinal uses. Lauded by the ancient Greeks and adored by Napoleon and the Empress Joséphine, their popularity, particularly as a cut flower, reached a height in Victorian and Edwardian times. Sweet violet was growing in the garden at Versailles, outside of Paris, where both violets and roses grew in profusion. The sweet scents and the deep colors, especially at dusk, lured Claire and Jamie multiple times to stroll, kiss, and whisper during the parties of King Louis XV. This scene is my inspiration for this lovely felted scarf or wrap.
Felting is the very first method mankind began making fabric, beginning centuries prior to the time period of Outlander. In fact, highly sophisticated felted artifacts were found preserved in permafrost in a tomb in Siberia and dated to 600 AD. The costumes on the Outlander series have included several felted garments. Cobweb felt is a decorative, lacy, lightweight fabric made with softness and drape. Art and function meld together in thin felt with natural holes, curls of wool, and almost transparent areas, all part of its beauty.
Using,various types of wool, mohair, bamboo, silk, sari threads, shiny fiber, and locks of long haired curly sheep, I very thinly layer the all of these to create for you a unique one of a kind cobweb felted wrap or shawl. Look closely at the photographs to see if you can spy all the different fibers and materials. I use the same type of materials in each shawl but each shawl is unique due to the nature of felting. Your awesome scarf or shawl will be very similar to the pictures but unique! The edges of this piece are very organic while the surface is uniquely textured with the numerous types of fiber I used and is a one-of-a-kind (OOAK) treasure.
After hand felting this lovely piece, it will be perfect to wrap about your shoulders or head when the cool breeze wafts down from the Scottish hills. For yourself or the Outlander fan in your life!
