Felting Question

i have just finished knitting and am ready to felt… all of the directions i have read state that you need a washing machine to felt… well i don’t have one and i don’t want to take it to the laundry mat… is it possible to felt in the bathtub… if so how???

thanks :XX:

You can felt in the tub or sink, although a sink would be easier if the project isn’t too large.

Fill your sink with hot water (hottest you can stand without burning yourself, you’ll need to submerge your hands). Add a little bit of detergent. Then get aggressive on that knitting. Rub and agitate it as much as you can, but do not wring or twist it. Squeeze out the water, then rinse with cold water. Repeat until you reach the desired size and shape.
