When going through the yarn stash that I inherited from my mother-in-law, I came across a bag full of tapestry wool. I think she used it to hook rugs. Some of it was cut in lengths, but some was still in the skein. I thought it might be good for felting since it is 100% wool. So, I knit up a little bag and threw it in the wash. It came out beautifully. I used the jewelry bag pattern from Felted Knits by Beverly Galeskas. Since the first bag turned out so well, I tried a smaller gift bag from the same book.
Oh, the fun I will have with this yarn! I think I might even try dyeing the pale skeins into something more colorful.
