I've seen people blending superwash wool with feltable wool into batts.
so I'm just wondering, is there a point to this?
are there any benefits to blending superwash and non superwash fibers?
has anyone felted with yarn spun from this blend?
did it turn out wonky?

I have a pound of SW millends from the sheep shed, and no other SW fiber. so I'm just trying to figure out what to do with it haha I might just split it up into 4oz sections, overdye them (it's a vibrant blue right now) with different colors, and then do some blending. thoughts?

I have done this and I honostly think of who I am making the batt for and their spinning and knitting tastes and decide. Sometimes I throw it all together because it's what's onhand. I am the only one in my local group of friends who really does much of any felting so it isn't so much an issue. Sometimes I just want it to be able to take a little more beating in it's final item. Not sure if it really helps but I think it might hold up a little differently. I bet Cyndi would know though. (MLF)
