Hi MaryB >>
Read this small part and see if it helps any ??
The opened web site has more to offer >> !

I had this site for some time now and I think this part ( that I made bold and red lettered ) is interesting and helpful in doing a controlled >>> shrink/felt !


There are also moderns ways to cheat mechanically. An old-fashioned washing board is a big help when you're trying to full by hand. It's a good tool, especially for a small project, because you keep an eye on what's happening and you can stop precisely when you reach a satisfactory state, and also because you can full some spots more or less and keep better control on the final shaping.
