  • Knitting Needles: Size 6.5 mm (U.S. 10½) or size needed to obtain gauge. Snap fastener.

Things to Know Before Felting:

Record all the measurements and changes before and after felting. You will be able to adjust the method to produce proper results.
Always test a sample. Different colored yarns may felt differently.
Colorfastness can be affected by very hot water.
Any knit fabric that has been properly felted becomes very dense and matted.

How to Felt:

Using low water level, run a Hot/Cold cycle for 5 to 15 min. Add a pair of old jeans for agitation.
Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda for a small load. After one cycle, check for size. Repeat if necessary.
Run through the rinse and dry spin cycle.
Do not use a clothes dryer.
Lay felted piece onto a dry towel, away from direct heat or sunlight.
Shape piece to correct measurements.
If an edge ripples, baste a thread through the edge and gather in. Remove the thread after the felting is dry.

My french press will be kept warmer and I can use up my scrap yarn. A definite win-win.

It is terrible when you try to read a pattern or look at a picture and an advertisement keeps grabbing hold of your computer
