help felting Lamb's Pride Worsted?
I did some research and I did read that this one takes longer, but I've frankly lost count of how many runs through the wash I'm up to. I've also tried doing the cold rinse, using a bit of regular detergent, adding baking soda, soaking for 15 (and then 20) minutes in the hot water before agitating, etc. I haven't felted in a while and only the second time with this machine (new top loader purchased in 01/2011) and the first time worked beautifully. What's odd is ONE section of the items are felted perfectly gorgeous, but the part that's more important to felt for sizing has barely, if at all.
Anyone have any other tips or at least had similar experience so I don't freak out? LOL. Thanks in advance!
ETA: Oh, I do have one specific question. I know to add jeans/towels, etc. to the wash and use the smallest load size possible for the best agitation, but is there like a recommended amount of additional things? I keep adding items hoping it will help.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
