another felted FO

French Market Bag

Pattern: French Market Bag by Polly Outhwaite
Source: Knitty.com
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca
Needles: US 8

Finally felted, but I think it needs another spin in the wash before it is really finished. What do you all think? The green yarn didn't felt as well as the brown. Weird considering it is the same yarn. Another thing, it came out very fuzzy. Hairs everywhere. It was a good thing it was in a zippered pillow case or else my washer would have been a mess! Any ideas on how to de-fuzz?

  1. It's not at all unusual for different colors in the same line to felt differently. White yarn (like bleached white, not sheep white) is notoriously difficult to felt.

  2. Try using a sweater shaver.
