Remember this?

This is a warning to all.... I have had MANY people say to me, "you can't felt wool in a front-loading washer". THIS IS NOT ~ I REPEAT ~ IS NOT A TRUE STATEMENT.

You can felt in a front-loader. Did you hear me? Did you read this? Yes it is true. You can CAN can felt wool in a front-loader.

Pictures coming soon.

This piece and my lovely fitted, with boob darts as Jimmy reminded me, blue bombshell partially felted last night in the hand wash setting of my front-loader.

Take heed knitters!

So sorry to hear that! I've had things felt on me, too, and it's not fun.

I felt things like bags and stuff that aren't size exact specific. So things felt and felt well - If I'm felting a hat or gloves or slippers that need to be an exact size I go use the top loaders at the laundromat so I can take them out and check on them from time to time.

Sorry about the accidental felting!
