How to Felt Wool?

Answer

There are several ways to felt wool. One is needle felting, but the most used method is hot water felting. Place your item in a pillow case to protect your washer from excess lint and fuzz during the process, and tie closed. Agitate your item in a full cycle using the hottest water setting, as small amount of detergents, and a few towels to 'beat' against your item. Check it at the end of the cycle to see if it is felted to your satisfaction. If not, repeat until it is, then either block to dry, or put it in the dryer, again inside the pillowcase.
