okay, these are just guesses. I am the world's worst knitter,lol.

1. To protect the bottle. Felted bags are more squishy KWIM?

2. To keep the bottle chilled or warm, depending on the wine.

3. A felted fabric is pretty easy to clean.

HTH! Any more guesses,lol.

maybe they think we're drinking while knitting & it will cover up any mistakes? Smiley

my guess is that it is because if the bottle is chilled it will sweat, so if the cozie is felted the it won't matter so much.
