The trouble with taking it to a laundromat is that I think most of the machines are locked closed for the cycle so no one gets hurt. I always check my felted items multiple times to make sure they aren't getting bent or over felting. Some yarns don't take the whole cycle.

I felted slippers recently, but they of course were able to fit in laundry bags. I think they make bigger ones, but I'm not sure. Some of the fuzz was in my washer anyway. I was able to just take it out.

Jan, sorry to hear you had the flu! Hope you're feeling better now.

I'm not sure what size your dog bed is, but it didn't look so enormous that it wouldn't fit into a regular washing machine. So what if you took it to a laundromat and used one of the regular sized washers? I think you can open the lid on most of those (but check before you dish out a lot of money on it).

Another option might be to use one of those laundry bags for dirty clothes that college students often use (something like this: http://www.laundrybags.com/c-32-laun...FQZeTAody0blRg).

You might not be able to totally close the top, but the opening would be fairly small.
