I’ve never felted, and I think I’ll make my first purse felted :happydance:
I have a simple tote design in mind and I want to do a gradated design (knitting with 2 yarns at once).
All I know about felting is
- Use 100% wool
- Make it larger because it will shrink when washed
- Wash once in hot (?) water for the felting to happen
Will subsequent washes make it shrink even more??? I intend on lining it. So I wouldn’t want that to happen!
If any of you felters out there have better advice go ahead and shoot!
So…will just any 100% wool do? What about weight of yarn? Or are all wool the same weight?
