This is addictive! Luckily I had a good stash of felted sweaters around. I couldn’t stop making them!! Check out the cinnamon bun one!!

what types of blends felted the best?

100% wool works best. I found some 100% lambswool and they are the softest. You can felt sweaters with a bit of other content, but wool has to be 90-95% for best results.
I machine washed all my sweaters at once using liquid Tide and had to put in a pair of old sneakers for friction (that helps the felting process). The first time I washed them with only a tennis ball and that didn’t give enough friction (some sweaters hardly felted). Then I air dried on hangers. Good luck 🙂
