Hi Ya'll! How does Malabrigo felt? I splurged on a skein to see how it knit cause of all the comments on here. And, of course, fabulous!
I was thinking of making a felted purse.. but is it soft or scratchy when felted?

Thanks,
Erin

Soft,a lady from my LYS said she made clogs out of it and it was soft

I made clogs for my grandson with it and they're soft and thick.

and it felts fast. I have a front load washer so stuff usually takes forever for it to felt (and i lose patience before it is done so it never gets fully felted :teehee:) but with the Malabrigo it felted completely in two rounds through my machine. Manos does too.
