I'm 100% positive it was their regular Lamb's Pride Worsted which is supposedly excellent for felting. Knitter's Review did a series on felting and said it took 26 minutes (I'm probably closer to 26 wash cycles lol,) which was longer than most other wools, but that it felted just fine and maybe a bit thicker than other felts, but nothing else about it really. I even tried submerging in a bowl of ice and then back in the hot as I read that somewhere (I'd heard the temperature shock sometimes helps before reading that.)

I think I'm going to give it one more shot in a full wash and if it doesn't work, just going to have to run out tomorrow and find some wool, I'm afraid. :/ I just don't have much of a selection locally, hopefully I can find something!

Thanks a bunch!

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
