Three yards of wool stored in my cedar chest since the 1970s. Don’t remember what I planned to make but obviously I didn’t great around to it.
Then I got a bright idea! Why don’t I make it into felted wool and use it in an exchange project? So I put it in the washing machine using the hot water cycle and washed it once, and when that was finished I washed it a second time in more hot water.
It went into the dryer for a very long time. Like 70 minutes long. I wanted it shrunken as far as it would go.
and it came out looking like this --
It turned out perfect. Now I have about one and one-half yards of beautiful pink felted wool. I can’t show you what I used it for yet. I’m waiting for my exchange partner to receive her package before I post any pictures. Hope the suspense doesn’t kill ya!
