My last blends challenge was fun, so I thought i'd do another one! Don't dismiss a sweater just because it isn't 100% wool! Though I only sell 70% wools/animal fibers (wool, angora, cashmere) & up for consistency in felting, I will use lower content blends sometimes, for my own personal projects. Let's find out if this batch will felt (or "full"... the correct, but less commonly used term)! [Insert cheesy announcer voice] Ready to meet out contestants?
Contestant #1 - funky patterned hoodie - 60% wools
I really hope this one felts! It has 3 different patterns on it, and would be great for multiple projects!
Contestant #2- scenery patterned - 60% wools
Contestant #3 - cream fair isle - 63% wools
Contestant #4 - yellow cabled - 65% wools
Contestant #5 - pretty green & white stripes - 60% wools
Contestant #6 - lovely lavender - 65% wools
Contestant #7- patterned mohair - 51% wools
Somehow I forgot to take the whole sweater pictures for this one & the next one.
Contestant #8- light green - 65% wools
Contestant #9 - bright turquoise - 55% wools
This one, and the next one, are almost like cheating, because both of them are already lightly felted, so I am pretty sure they will felt further.
Contestant #10- tan with chest stripes - 52% wools
They are in the washing machine right now. What do you think the results will be? Stay tuned for the results in the next few days!
