Two weeks ago I received the special request to make a shroud. For this I painted 7 meters of silk to match the style of the dress. I felted this in 2 parts with 7 meters of Merino wool. After felting, 2 cloths of 300x100 cm remained. I sewed these 2 parts together, creating a large felt fabric of 300x200 meters. A supple, strong and warm shroud with a beautiful sheen due to the layer of silk. I am grateful that I was allowed to make this shroud.
