Boiled wool?

I’ve seen jackets in catalogs and in stores that are called “boiled wool” jackets. Yes, they look as if they’d be warm. Now after the neverending clog stuff I was wondering if these are what we knitters call felting.

I think it is… I was wondering that myself and just thought that must be felting. Since picking up the needles again I must admit to looking at everything with a new eye. I look at those lovely wool coats and am sure they are felted too :wink:

In fact… lookie here! http://www.sew-whats-new.com/boiledwool.shtml sounds like felt to me :wink:

I must agree, sounds like felting to me :wink:

Seems to me that boiled wool is just a particular method of felting… it sounds more upscale! :lol:
