felting question
hello
i'm new to the forum so i apologize if my question is redundant
i'm having trouble finding what i'm looking for

i have a pattern to crochet this groovy hat that's felted, but the yarn i'd like to use is not 100% wool.

it's
45% polyacrylic
25% wool
20% viscose
10% nylon

this stuff is not going to felt is it?

thnx

Nope. That won't felt. You need a non-washable mostly wool yarn to felt. Non-washable means no superwash.

BTW... I moved your post here because it was in the wrong forum. The Knit-a-long forum is for knit-a-longs (KAL) only. If you post in the proper forum your questions will get answered more quickly because more people will see it that know how to help.
