I thought I read somewhere that darker color wool yarns felt better than lighter colors. Is that true? I want to make a felted purse (one I’ve made before with darker yarn) and the pattern instructions say to knit with 2 strands. Would I be making problems for myself if I use a dark brown and cream together?? I figured I’d ask the experts first. Thanks!!!

I think it is that white and light colored yarns can sometimes take longer to felt b/c of the bleaching agents that are used to make them white. Best thing to do would be to knit a test swatch of each and see if they felt symmetrically.

best of luck
