Knit a five by five or ten by ten square.
If it is ten by ten - the finished size will let you know the % of shrinkage in a hurry. If it is five by five - double the amount shrunk to get the %.
Felting raw wool without knitting it......Threads magazine by Taunton had an article on that some time back.......you might try a search on their website - www.taunton.com - then go to the Threads magazine site.
torn between two stashes
Is there some way to estimate how much shrinkage I will get when I felt a knitted wool object such as a bag or hat? Also, what kind of raw wool should I use if I want to make some felted objects directly from the wool fibers rather than knitting them? Thanks in advance!
