Hi...

I am wondering if someone has felted with Wool of the Andes...

Proud Peruvian! :)

Many, many people around here have felted with it and it works very, very well, too. :thumbsup:

One more question...

When felting, does the stitch used make a difference?

I don't believe there's too much visible difference between different types of stitches when something is felted.

The only thing I've kinda noticed is that garter stitch tends to felt up into a slightly thicker fabric than stockinette stitch, but maybe that's my observation.

I've only felted with WOTA and Lamb's Pride worsted and I must say that both felt up lovely! If you don't want too much fuzz, then WOTA is the way to go. Here's a pic of a felted lamb made with WOTA in tan and coal.

The Mod Squad was here - Photo Resized. Pictures should be no more than 500 pixels wide.

That lamby is adorable! I have the pattern, but not the yarn yet.

I've felted several things with WOTA and it felts just fine.
