Step 15: Put on head before going out on a cold day
It's done. Warm, non itchy, virtually free and saved 2 pieces of unwanted clothing from the landfill.
Step 3: Repeat wash cycles if necessary
If necessary, repeat the washing cycle more than once to get the sweater to feel thick felt . This sweater took two washings to make the stripes only 1 1/4 inches and to felt the wools fibers. ( The yarn will not be able to unravel when cut and the stitches are not clearly defined.)
