I tried something for the first time this weekend. I've read quite a bit about it, and am utterly facinated by it.
Looks like a pretty spiffy red bag, right?
It's wool. I washed it in hot water. Twice.
This is straight out of the second wash...
It went from 13" x 10" with a 16" drop to 8" x 7" with a 11" drop.
After pinning it down to square off the edges and letting it dry, I ended up with a nice finished product:
It's all I can do today to not run out to the yarn store and buy out all the wool yarn.
