So my latest goodwill find, plain ole natural color, 100% wool sweater from J Crew, doesn't felt. Must be some kinda superwash. I unraveled it, washed it, dyed it with koolaid and put it in a small wash load inthe washing machine with HOT water for a whole cycle and......nothing. no shrinkage. Ah well. It makes good kool aid wool anyway.

That yarn in the pots while you were dyeing it reminded me of Ramen Noodles. Very pretty yarn though I am sure you will find a good purpose for it.

I'm sure you can find something to do with it anyway! It came out pretty!
