Felting?

Will Alpaca felt? And i saw a ball of 100%wool that was “mercised?” I made that word up but i know it started with a “M”, Will that felt? Hahahahaa let me know if anyone has any idea what i’m talking about.
Thanks!

yes, it will felt…wool (unless superwash) will felt. I don’t about the mercerized, I thought that was a process only used for cotton yarn:??

I think you can mercerize any fiber. I know mercerized fiber takes dye, but the mercerizing process smooths the yarn and removes some of that hairy texture, so I don’t know how well it would felt.

Does the band around the yarn say you can machine wash it? If so, it won’t felt. You can always knit a swatch and wash it to see if it will felt.
