Etsy Stylist: How You Felt About Winter
Felt isn’t just for arts-and-crafts class any more By Amber Taylor
Comments () | Published February 14, 2011

Still feeling the chill? Stave off the rest of winter’s cold with these handmade felt items from Etsy. Wool felt is amazingly warm and lends itself to the creation of three-dimensional fashion.

These felted wool headbands add a boho vibe to your winter wear. Amanita Mushroom and Pink Flower headbands, Phoebe’s Fiber, $22 each.

Cristina Pires’s black swan scarf (right) evokes modern art and nature. Cygnus Atratus Apparatus, $111.

Other Etsy artists essentially sculpt accessories with felted fiber. Red felt collar, RVSD, $32; and white chain necklace, Felt Fieltro Filc, $69.

The figure-flattering drape of Sandmaiden’s felted tops will surprise you. Dolman top, $125.

Felting thinly knit fabric allows for a translucent, ethereal wrap with warmth. Manon Knits, Black Marble cobweb lace scarf, $68; and Fiery Lava wrap, $65.

The structured waves of this scarf by Felted Pleasure demonstrate the opposite extreme. Wavy scarf in lavender, $64.
