Patons Classic wool — yes. Felts up quite quickly (a hat takes 10 minutes in my washing machine — may be quicker in some)

As others have said — yes, it does. And I love the finished effect (as compared to other wools). I’ve used it for making felted tote bags.

I made a headband for my husband and it was too big. I threw it into a mesh bag and into the washer, not realizing it would felt. It did and now it fits perfectly and is very warm.

The 100% wool is the BEST for felting. ( the one that won’t felt is the one labeled with Superwash)

Wow! I have used this yarn for felting many times but never for simply a straight wool knitted item. I have some right now I want to use for a pullover sweater. Should I reconsider? I have used Lion Brand 100% Fishermans wool for two sweaters and had no problem with felting. ( I have also intentionally felted it. It too felts beautifully).

I am curious as to how you launderd the Patons wool. Could that have been the problem? If not, I may have to rethink using this for my sweater. Anyone else have any experience making a sweater with this yarn?

I just handwash anything I’ve made from it that I don’t want to have felted.

Also, part of the felting process — making the item at a larger gauge than normal, or knitted loosely, so that there is room for it to felt. If you knit with the wool to a tight gauge, it doesn’t felt, or at least, very little. Imagine the difference between squeezing a rubber ball and squeezing a sponge — there is more room to compress the sponge than the ball…. So, when making something that you want to felt, you generally use a larger needle, and make the item bigger. Yes, a sweater can felt if not washed carefully, because it isn’t knit tightly, so it will have a more soft drape.

100% pure and premium wool makes this one of Patons’ finest yarns. The timeless shade range and the supreme quality make for classic yet contemporary garments and accessories. It’s also the hidden gem in the world of felting, as this is the ideal yarn for fabulous felted projects.

No, I don’t do needlework.

But I am married to the world’s best knitter!

And she’s so much more than a knitter; for a while now, my wife has been turning Alpaca fleece into roving, spinning that roving into yarn, than using her knitty-knotty to turn the yarn into a hank.

But when it was time to turn a home-made (or store-bought) hank into a ball of yarn for knitting, my qualified and highly skilled (!) arms and hands were needed.

Any husband that was enlisted to hold apart a hank, and moving it just right while the wife balled up the yarn, can probably relate to my experience and feelings.

So for Christmas, I wanted to give her (and subsequently, my tired arms …) the gift of a swift, so she could ball up her hanks of yarn whenever she needed to, even when neither myself nor any of the kids were around to
