So I finished my first fetching with some lovely hand dyed wool I found on ebay (seller: inaspin) but stupidly knit this on needles that were a bit too big. So my poor little fetching is large and bulky. Can I felt it? Will it totally ruin my beautiful cables? Help!

I've seen felted cables look fantastic... but that was on a bag in a solid colour... but if you like the variegated cables now I think you will like them later. The biggest danger is felting them down to a baby mitten size. If you're careful not to do that I think it should be okay. If you are sure it is not superwash.
Another option you could try first is sewing in knitting elastic to make it pull in more. Or reknit - Fetchings are pretty fast, worth the effort maybe?
