I purchased a sweater at a thrift store, hoping inspiration (and luck in my case!) would enable me to actually make something out of it. Honestly, the label said 100% wool. So I tossed it in the washing machine set on hot water and cotton cycle. When it finished, I had a slightly misshapen sweater and a bunch of fiber in my machine. Okay, try again. Same results. I then went back to the store and found another sweater that said 100% wool. Using the same procedure, my sweater felted! It was going to be a handbag, but there wasn’t enough material. A passport wallet was born.
