Bought some Yarn Bee Mosaic Twist at Hobby Lobby today on super sale.  I'm really hoping it can be felted into a pretty little clutch, but it is a wool blend rather than straight wool:

--36% polyamide, 11% cotton, 35% wool, and 18% acrylic

Anyone know if this can be felted?  I tried the "felting test" here: http://www.getknitting.com/ak_0601felting.aspx.  The fibers seem to stick together okay.

It may felt, though maybe not what you want. Knit up a swatch, measure before and after and watch the changes. May take more than one attempt too.
