So I made one of the Fuzzyfeet from knitty which is basically just a hugungeous sock and then you felt it and it make like a bootie/slipper thingy. Well I made the sock and put it through the wash on hot water with jeans twice and it almost looks bigger! What did I do wrong? How many time you gotta wash this thing…
Oh yeah, I used Anny Blatt 100% wool called Rustique. Very similar to Lamb’s Pride
What kind of yarn did you use?
what kind of yarn did you use? it looks like superwash…
I had to wash my first booga three times before it shrunk. Try washing again and use a cold rinse, I cant remember off the bat who said it, but some wise person here said it “shocks” the yarn.
well i just found this thread on knitter’s review…
edited to actually add the link that i rudely left off
I just looked up the yarn that you used, and it says machine wash, unshrinkable. SO SORRY that this happened
Maybe you can put that beautiful cat in there?
Do you think I could frog it and use it again?

Don’t know why not. Heck, it’s even had a good washing!
yeah people frog used sweaters and reuse the yarn can’t see how this would be different!
I would absolutely use it again!!
[size=2]Just not for anything felted. Sorry![/size]
OH that SOOOO stinks! Im pouting for you, Femmy!
aw sorry this happened to you, feministmama. that’s gorgeous yarn though. can’t wait to see what you make instead :D!
Whatever you make, at least you’ll know that you can wash it in the machine without worry!
Oh man… that totally sucks. They should put a big old stamp on yarn lables that say “Feltable” or “NON-Feltable”… right next to the gauge!
Do they even know that we’re doing this to their yarn? It’s surprising what things companies can miss, even when it’s essential to their business. :lol:
