I just got a ton of 100% wool yarn that was on sale for $1.97 each!
I want to make a baby dress with cotton on top, and felted wool on the bottom.
I'm gonna start with a headband to practice.
Can you boil the item on the stove to felt it? Without a machine?
I'm new to this, so that might be an obvious no...



If not, how can I felt without a washing machine?
Ours broke a while back and there will not be a new one til Monday! But I wanna felt now! :P

I tried felting with my machine, and my machine just sucks so I never looked back.
I hope that link helps you out!
