I attempted to full some slippers that I had crocheted with 100% virgin wool over the weekend. The first pair are salvageable, but the second ones will take quite a bit of work! I started with an ugly pea green that I tried to dye black, as you can almost see frome the pic it turned a varigated dark green and black, that was ok. But After I had crocheted them and put them in the washer to full them they came out narrow and with little shrinkage in the length. The 2nd one ended up longer than I had crocheted it. Has any one else noticed that crocheted items tend to shrink more in one direction or another?
