This fascinating felting technique was discovered by a textile artist in Australia during the early 90's. The name NUNO is Japanese (meaning cloth), and refers to the method of bonding unspun wool onto a sheer silk background to create a lightweight fabric. The fibres can completely cover the background fabric, or they may be used as a decorative design that allows the sheer fabric to show. It is truly like painting with wool!
