INSTRUCTIONS

Important 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 knitting that has been properly felted becomes very dense and matted.

Felting:

  • Put knitted pieces in top-loading washing machine. Using low water level, run a Hot/Cold cycle for 5-15 min. Put in a pair of jeans or large towel (in non-interfering color) for extra agitation.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda for a small load. After one cycle, check for size. Repeat as necessary.
  • Run through the rinse and spin cycle.
  • Lay felted piece on a dry towel, away from heat or sunlight.
  • Shape piece to correct measurements.
  • Allow to dry thoroughly. Do not use a clothes dryer.
  • If an edge ripples, baste a thread through the edge and gather in. Remove the thread after the felting is dry.
