Shibori Felting

I thought of giving Shibori felting a try... I knit a 10 cm square (gauge 24x30) in pure 100% alpaca (Drops alpaca n. 7238).

Then I tied some marbles in it, and it became smaller right away.

After a cycle in the washing machine (40°C) it felted quite well, and it shrunk to a 5cm square. I took the marbles out and voilà. It turned out very soft but much more compact (due to the felting). More about felting you can find here. So now I'm ready for a long scarf... I think felted alpaca is perfect for a scarf. You wouldn't like to have something itchy againt your neck, would you?!

I made a scarf the same way except I used pennies to get flatter bumps . The picture is somewhere in my archives.It will be very warm ,maybe too warm for England so next time I want to make a bag.
