    A Brooklyn-based fashion designer was found dead with a scarf around her neck inside her home this week, law enforcement sources said Friday.

    Svitlana Indelicato, 50 – who designed handbags as well as scarves and Pashmina shawls – was unconscious and unresponsive when her husband claimed he found her inside a room in the Bensonhurst home on 80th Street near 16th Avenue and called the police around 5 a.m. Thursday, the sources said.

    A scarf was wrapped around her neck, the sources said.

    “I work with wool, silk and other natural fibers using very unique and almost forgotten techniques while creating my designs,” Indelicato wrote on LinkedIn , describing her work.

    “I use felting, [which] is an ancient textile art, where manipulating wool, warm soapy water and rolling, squeezing and rubbing creates a very special one-of-a-kind piece.”
