So tonight when I got home from work I began the cleaning process. And another friend told me of soaking the wool in linen/laundry bags in the wash machine. So I thought shoot that would be easier than doing it by hand. So I filled it with hot water and put some wool in mesh bags, closed them up and put them in to soak. I then began spinning. I was in my old little world of spinning when I heard a familiar sound, the sound of the washing machine washing! I sprinted to the washer and cut it off, checked the setting it did still say soak, who knew that the soak cycle would start agitating? I crossed my fingers and hoped that I had caught it in time. So I turned it to the spin/rinse and waited breathlessly, and took it out and guess what?
That stuff felted like nobodies business! I was not a happy camper.
So back to the office to skirt some more and try again, only then did the hubby come home and want help mowing the grass, dinner and feeding the dogs. So that is on old until I can get another moment to try again.
But her are some pictures of my score thanks to Terri (did I mention how awesome she is?!)
My office after unloading the car.
Three special bags
Don't you just want to dive right in there?
And what can make a dog go all loopy and act sort of drunk? Dognip! AKA unwashed wool.
Probably should have saved that one for DOT, consider it a DOT preview.
