This made me
! I have done "felting", but the one time was NOT BY CHOICE!!! I had knit a hat, mitt and scarf set for a friend from 100% wool, and had tried to wash in in cold water to prevent shrinking...but the agitation still shrunk the heck out of them!!!
I didnt even have a little one to give them too after the damage.
It was only AFTER that I had heard that doing that was called felting!
