A little while ago I finished a piece of crochet; its beautiful and it took me ages (its stripy, autumnal colours, length & width of a scarf?, yellows and reds and purples and blues)
I really really am in love with it, its the best thing I've made, but I want to felt it so that I can use it as a dread wrap/scarf, without it stretching a lot.
I'm scared to felt it though! Really anxious. I don't want to ruin it. That and I've never felted before.
Sooooooo, how would I go about felting, in a washing machine (although I don't mind trying by hand), how much would it shrink, any hints & tips advice, and am I right to be scared?!
