Felt slippers in washing machine – SEE BELOW. After felting shape slippers while still wet.

FELTING: Wash slippers in washing machine at 40 degrees with detergent free of enzymes and optical bleach (usual spin and no pre-wash). If slippers are too large after felting, you may wash them again. If the slippers are too small, soak them and pull them into the right size.
Wash slippers at a wool programme at subsequent washes.
