For as many sweaters as I have sold, I am still a novice when it comes to felting. I have made a few things for my family & friends, but have a lot to learn. I know that if I want a tight consistent felt that I can count on Merino, but if I want a nice thick, soft diaper cover that lambswool is great. I also love a good blend with angora because it is soft. I used many blends in my quilts.
Does anyone know if silk is ok in a wool blend? If something were 70% wool & 30% silk would it felt ok? Would it still be able to be lanolized & used as a diaper cover with silk in it?
I want to hear from you now. Tell me your thoughts on wool! Give us your advice! Ask your questions too, and hopefully a felting pro will take us under her (or his!) wing :)
