Superwash Wool
I am working on creating felted bowls. I came across some yarn from a previous purchase. It is Shepherd Worsted 100% Superwash Wool. Has anyone ever felted with this kind of yarn? Can I use it?!?!

Superwash means it is machine washable and machine dryable. It will not full or felt.

Superwash great for sweaters, bad for felting.

Like everyone else said superwash will not work for felting. You might want to try a yarn like cascade 220 or try something from knitpicks.com they have reasonable prices and pretty colors Good luck

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
