Does anyone have any good estimate of how much WOTA felts? For example, does it shrink 50% one way and 25% the other? I forgot to measure my swatch before I felted :doh: and this is my first time using it. I’m just thinking that my bag is looking awfully large for the finished size I want it to be. TIA!
If it’s too big, you can felt it again to make it smaller.
Is there ever a point where it will stop felting?!
WOTA felts really really well. There will come a point where it will stop felting, but I’ll bet your bag will turn out fine. My first bag looked almost like a sleeping bag, it was so large, but it turned out great. Good luck!
Every washer is different and will felt things at different rates, but here are the measurements of my bag
17 1/2" side to side, 15 3/4" tall, 5" across bottom, 73 1/2" i-cord handle
after felting measurements
14 1/4" side to side, 9 1/2" tall, 3 1/2" across bottom, 49" i-cord handle
Keep in mind that these are my measurements and yours will be different, but this will maybe give you some idea.
That is so helpful!! Thank you!!! :cheering:
Based on what I have now, which is about 6 rows, the width will be longer than I want because it’s about 21 inches now and I want about 11. It looks like I need to adjust the pattern a little. I would rather it be on the small side.
Everytime i’ve used WOTA (and some others for that matter), I find that it shrinks much more in height than in width. Helpful if you’re doing a bag.
