One of the other reasons it is more difficult to FULL in a front loading washer is because you don't have the agitation that a top loading washer does.

Just an aside ... Felting is done with loose fibers and yarns.

If you already have a fabric made from wool (such as an old sweater or blanket), the term to shrink & bind the wool fabric is technically called Fulling not Felting.

It's no big deal what you call it ... just thought I'd add this in so you can impress your family and friends (as if they don't roll their eyes at us enough with are fiber addictions ....)
