Making Felt

Making Felt

Felting is the art of matting wool. Any kind of knit that you want more durable can be done through felting. The process of felting can sometimes seem intimidating or complicated. I love this complete feltmaking process with photos for every step from the Handweavers Guild of America. You can use the felting technique for creating ipod cozies, bags, bookcovers, you name it!

    Another cheap lazy way to felt/full is to take a wool sweater and machine wash it with hot soapy water.

    Hmm… I wonder if this technique would work with dryer lint.?.
