I just finished felting my Entrelac bag. I was so upset because my HOT water never got very hot in the washing machine. So after agitating it for 20 minutes it was beginning to felt but NOT shrink!! So I brought it upstairs and then ended up microwaving some hot water and agitating it by hand in the sink. Still it was not doing what I wanted it to do. So back to my book on felting and then I read about how I could boil it on the stove in a big pot. After 20 minutes of doing that I was much happier with the outcome. I used Nuro K. :XX: :XX:
I think this whole "experience" would have been a much happier one if my water had gotten HOT. But at least I found a way to get the job done.
