Bacon Scarf

If I ever wore scarfs then this would be the first scarf I would wear....yummm!

This is a fun felted bacon scarf. The loose red, pink, and white merino wool has been welt felted with warm, soapy water and agitated to hold its shape. Nothing is sewn, knitted, or crocheted in this piece, though I did use needle felting to reinforce some spots. (Technically, knitting or crocheting something and then felting is called fulling.) It is a bumpy rectangle bacon shape, and it measures approximately 41” x 9.5” at its narrowest near the middle and 11” at its widest near the ends. It looks like a real slice of bacon, with all the striations of fat and meat.
