I’ve never felted before…I’m making a simple striped bag, double stranded with my leftover 100% non-superwash wools and am about ready to felt. I remember on Knitty Gritty a tip for hats, which was to put the item OVER the agitator when it comes time to spin. Otherwise, do I go for the HOTTEST setting and HIGHEST agitation (cotton setting) on the machine? Or is it best for some reason to do it slower, in steps perhaps?
Do I use soap?
I only ask because I know there’s no going back.
