Felting in a front loader

ilanaeid_mdNovember 14, 2006

I am/was very excited to spend my child's college fund on a new front loading washing machine. Now I realize that it has no aggitator, so I'm wondering if anyone has successfully felted in this type of machine.

Can't do it... as far as I can tell. And I've TRIED. Oh, how I've tried.

It's either laundry mat or the bathtub for me :(

Barrow a friend or family member's washer to felt if you have a front loader. There are 2 cousins in my Thurs. knitting group. One has a front load, the other a top load. They share! If J needs to felt, she goes to visit D. They do a lot together, and have great fun.

Or.....Keep the top loader for just felting if it's possible with the way your laundry area is set up.

My front loader felts my purses. I just add a couple of pairs of jeans.

I just felted my first project (slippers with Merino yarn from knitpicks) in my front loader. I added some empty plastic pill bottles to the bag; used hot/cold water and a regular load of clothes. They felted up beautifully. Give it a try. Ellie

I felt all the time in my front loading machine. I created a page of tips for felting with a front loading machine. Use the link below to take a look at it.
