Hi. I'd like your opinion on Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and Shamrock. I'm working on a project where I will be felting (fulling) them. Do you think this will work?I've had some bad luck before and some 100% wool yarn didn't do anything except get wet in the washer.
lots of us have used wool of the andes (WOTA) for felting. It works well.
Sometimes 100% wool is treated so it WON'T felt. Wool that says "superwash" won't felt, and some lighter colors won't felt either because the yarn is bleached first.
The yarn that didn't work for me did not say superwash and it was dark blue.
Do you remember what type of yarn it was? Good to know so we don't accidentally use it, too.
