Shave felted bags??
Does anyone do this?

I felted my bag knitted with Lamb's Pride Worsted and there is a lot of fuzzies and I read that you should shave your bags when it's done drying?

Never felted, could someone share opinions? Does anyone do this?

Guess I'm not sure how to do either...just cut off the strays or what?

Thanks, sorry if I sound like a dope

After all our silly comments, you feel dumb!!

I haven't shaved my knitting, someone will have to give you the proper tool advice. Just remember that NO question is dumb!


Some of our answers, however. .. . . . .

not a dumb question at all.
I just use a regular ol' razor, a Gillette with disposable blades, the kind I use in the shower, but not a brand new blade ('cuz I didn't want to ruin a brand new blade), and shave the little fuzzy pilly things off.
you don't HAVE TO do this, but mine was looking pretty ratty and unkempt with all those fuzzies hanging off of it (ok, sorry, that last part was sort of a double entendre) :rofling:
