I made the other day a small swatch out of some light orange yarn that I believe is 100% wool, but I got no progress on felting. My washing machine doesn't have the large pole in the center (it's a whirlpool cabrio, I think) so that might be the problem, but I don't know what happened. I don't have the ball band handy, so I'm not sure that the issue might be something else, as I bought it 75% off from a "damaged bin" (all that was wrong with it was that the wrapper was falling off, I made sure it seemed okay before buying it), but I'm off to check for the band. Only one of the 7-8 balls I got had one on it.
Any ideas on what could have gone wrong?
Thanks in advance.
