I whipped up a second little purse/makeup bag last night, using the rest of my peruvian wool and the novelty yarn knitted together, one strand of each. After felting, the item is limp. :pout:
How do you get the felting to be more robust, to be thicker, like some of the really cute purses I've seen in the knitting stores? :?? Some of them seem to stand on their own and just are substantial items.
Should I use a double strand of the pure wool, and not knit in the novelty yarn, which doesn't felt at all? Or do I just need to keep felting it?
Any ideas? Many thanks!!
