Felting Wool



Felting Wool
What did I do wrong when I tried to felt wool?

I just tried felting wool in the washing machine, but nothing happened. Did I do it right? It’s 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. No acrylic in it or anything.. I put it on the hot wash/cold rinse cycle on normal speed at the longest wash setting. Also, I put it in a mesh bag.

I followed instructions from this site.. http://www.woolcrafting.com/how-to-felt-wool.html

Am I missing something here?

Make sure you don’t have a washable wool. Often these are labeled “Superwash”. 100% Peruvian Highland Wool generally felts well, though.

1) you have to have a washing machine with an agitator (top-loader, not front-loader). Coin-op laundry generally doesn’t work well because you don’t have the control over time and water level.
2) set the water level to the lowest level that will cover the item (for something small, pick the smallest load level)
3) put the item in the mesh bag in the hot water with just a little soap – I used a quick squirt of dishwashing soap
4) add an old towel to the load – it helps to have something rubbing around and against the item being felted
5) you have to “babysit” the process. When it gets close to the end of the wash cycle, stop the machine, take the item out and check it. If it’s not as felted as you would like, reset the machine to give it more time (if your machine will let you do this – all the machines I’ve used do). You don’t need “new” water, just more time.
