I picked up a sweater at Goodwill last week, which I’d like to try felting. It’s a new sweater (mans XL) which still has the tag on it. Though quite pretty it’s terribly scratchy which is probably why no one wanted to wear it, and why I didn’t wish to bother unravelling it.
The tag says it is “Pure New Wool”, handknit in Scotland. I don’t know much about wools (yet), but I do know that there are superwash wools out there which don’t felt. Is there any way to determine that ahead of time? I kind of hate to waste a sweater by attempting to felt it if it’s not “feltable”.
