I woke up this morning intent on trying felting ( must have been sleep-knitting.... :teehee: ) I have some left over yarn in my stash that is 55 percent wool and 45 percent acrylic - can that be used for felting?
Would it be helpful to try a swatch first?
Would it be better to work with the smallest needles possible?
How do you decide on the size to make your un-felted item - there is no way to know how much it will "shrink", is there?
I want to make a purse that goes over my head and ends up against my hip - any suggestions on how long to make the handle?
Hope these questions aren´t silly..... thanks! Karen
