I’ve been wondering why my felting projects don’t come out as nice as many that I’ve seen? By that, I mean that the fabric is still pretty nubbly and not smooth like I think it should be. They’re ok, but I’ve seen so much better.
Could it be my washer? Is it just not getting beat up enough? I’ve got one of those front loaders that’s supposed to be extra gentle on your stuff so it doesn’t get so worn, and I thought it could be also being too gentle on my projects.
I put the stuff in a pillow case, and run it through about 10 minutes at a time on hot. (That’s no picnic, either, with a front loader, because it has to spin and drain each time before I can open it.) Anyway, I typically put in something heavy, too, like jeans or towels. Would maybe shoes be better?
Any other thoughts or ideas? Thanks!
