Are you sure that the wool you are using is NOT superwash? Superwash won't wet felt at all, and even different breeds of feltable wool are harder to wet felt than others.  Fulling comes after the wool has felted together already- sounds like your problem might be with the felting part at the beginning though. Please ask if you have any  questions!

So, I'm new to the world of felting, but these are so adorable! Question: since they're made of wool are they itchy at all? Or does that depend on what type of wool you use?

It depends on the type of wool you use. I am especially sensitive so will only use really soft wool  for close to skin items.  Most people are fine with merino as it's very very soft....and it also happens to be easy to wet felt with too, as it tends to felt quickly.
