Is Highland Wool feltable?
I purchased some peruvian highland wool and I don't actually know if it is feltable. The lable says to wash at 30 degrees, so is that an indication? Thanks!

Does the label show a hand washing it? If it looks like it's in a bin, then it's machine washable and won't felt. If it's hand wash only, it should.

I haven't been called groovy since the 60's!

Just to be clear, if the hand is washing it, it's feltable. If just the temperature is in a bin, then it's not.

Groovy is a staple word in this house! No offense was meant! There is a hand in the bin, not just the temp. So, thanks again!
