Hey Kim! No problem!
I used Plymouth's (I think it's Plymouth's) Outback for my booga bag, but I ended up hating the colors. It took a LONG time for it to felt too and I actually want to felt it some more, but I've kinda tossed it aside for a while since I don't like the colors.
For the Lopi tote, I used Wool of the Andes from Knitpicks
and held it double stranded. (I think I actually held the Outback wool double stranded as well.) I made one bag in plain black and the other I did red and black stripes, just making the stripes up as I went along. I think both of those turned out great and they felted very quickly! I wish I had pictures of both to show you, but they are still sitting on my camera or computer waiting to be resized so I can show them off!
I definitely recommend Wool of the Andes. It is so cheap and comes in so many colors. I know a lot of other folks on the board use it as well. I'm sure your LYS will have many different brands of wool too if you have one around.
Hope that helps!
And thanks for the compliments on my doggie (Jackson)! He's my baby! Good luck with posting an avatar for yourself! If I can figure it out I'm sure you can too! :D
