Felted bags



I knitted the pink bag last year and have just finished the orange and pink one ( I like bright)they are fun to use. they are knitted in pure wool and when finished are very large and shapeless, you then throw them into the washer on a hot wash and they shrink to a usable size and the wool is solidly felted and very strong.

Wow, wow and wow! I love them. I've never shrunk things 'to order' - it's impressive. Connie. x

These are great. I accidentally "felted" a wool sweater once. Does that count?
