I had read in Knit One Felt Too that you could felt something by boiling it on the stove & alternating with cold baths for about an hour. So, since I live in an apartment building & have to pay $1.00 for each washload I decided to try it out with the Manos I knit up the other day. The smell was a lot less worse than I expected but the yarn didn’t felt in an hour. Finally I just gave up and went back to the washing machine. Two loads, $2.00 later it was very nicely felted. Anyone else ever try this?
