Purls and Knit

Musings from an Environmental Engineer who tends to be full of knit.

Felting Demo 2 April 2, 2009

Filed under: Fiber Working — knitbee @ 7:47 pm

This is a follow up post to my previous one. I am answering my question about how this wool reacts to felting as a single strand.

I made a coffee cup cozy. I just used St St  for the circumference of my coffee cup.

I used as single strand of Bernat Felting Natural Wool and felted it twice as I did with the pot holder.

This method showed a lot more shrinking than the two strand method. I will enjoy this cool cozy to hold my hot tea cups.

I did both of these experiments to prepare for a pair of felted slippers that I am making for Alex. I will post on them in the next few days as I finish them up.
