How to make a felted wool ball

Tags: felted, pompom,

Felting is so easy and everyone can do it!

In this DROPS video we show how to make a small ball. Wind the yarn around two fingers, after a couple rounds, remove yarn from fingers and continue winding around the yarn until you have a ball. Keep winding the yarn around and around until you have the size on the ball you want.
Place the ball in a thin stocking and put it in the washing machine with a detergent without enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40 C/104F with normal spin but no pre-wash. At subsequent wash, wash the ball at regular wool programme.

Make many balls and put them together to a felted garland!

Qué sistema tendría que seguir para fieltrar un vestido de punto? En cuánto he de calcular que la lana encogerá? Gracias
