Will this felt?

Recommended Posts

I've got some yarn bee mosaic twist in my stash and was wondering if anyone knew if it would felt? The label says it contains the following: 36% Polyamide, 11% Cotton, 35% Wool and 18% Acrylic. Is this enough wool to felt or am I going to have to use it for something else? Thanks for the help!

No, I don't think it will felt. It needs to be mostly wool or other animal fiber (mohair, alpaca, etc.)

 

You could always test felt a swatch.

This won't felt well... (Though I HAVE gotten some interesting results from 60%+ wool blends...)

 

It IS a nice yarn, IMHO, but not for felting.

Well thanks for responding! I wasn't sure if this had enough wool content so I'm glad to get the help. I'll just figure something else out for this yarn...hmmm:lol
