Felted scarf-collar with vintage lace. What it is made of?

I made this scarf-collar using Nuno felt technique from fine merino wool, silk and vintage lace. I have added silk slivers for special effects. The lace, silk and merino wool are dyed with onion skins, which give to the fibers a brilliant golden color.

Here is my heritage - ancient french lace after dyeing with onion skins:

Each cotton lace got it's own shade of the color. Isn't it beautiful?

And here you can compare the original color of the wool and silk and the color after dyeing:

So here are all component parts of the collar:
After felting you have only to embellish your creation with vintage buttons and organza ribbon!
