It's not superwash wool by any chance is it?
thank you! ill throw in the jeans now.

its cascade pastazza & another 100% wool i foolishly threw the labels away for (ugh, i dont usually do that, not sure what i was thinking! )

what does superwash wool mean?

ps... i just checked on it, it is felting! - how do i tell when it is exactly perfect?

Superwash wool is treated so it won't felt when you wash it in the machine, even though it's 100% wool.

Just keep checking your, now-felting bag and take it out when it's the size you want it to be.

Oh boy I can't wait to see it. I am working on two felted purses now. One is the Lopi Tote, which I have made one of already and the other is a Buttonjar pattern called the Doctor Bag.
