Felting wool 50g curls
Simply knit and then felt in the washing machine.
Please note the following when felting in the washing machine:
The colors bleed out easily and the knitted piece will be about 30-40% smaller.
Choose colored laundry at 40 degrees Celsius and do not use fabric softener. Wash with plenty of water, so without no savings program.
Add three tennis balls to the knitted piece. These support the felting process through their weight and friction.
After washing, pull the knitted piece into the desired shape while it is still damp.
