I noticed it puffed more than fulled when I whacked the crap out of it.
:fiber terminology educator hat on:
That 'puff' is called 'blooming
'. Very descriptive and accurate of what happens.Fulling
: I know these terms are really used interchangeable now, but just in case you run into a fiber person who is anal about using correct terminology, there is a difference.
is youse lookin' at me??
Fulling is what happens to fabric (be it knitted, woven, crocheted)
Felting is what happens to fiber that is not yet fabric.
Now I just need to get a good lightweight spindle and work my way towards fingering weight yarns
Light weight spindles are a snap to make ... Use a dowel rod for the shaft and something light weight for the whorl (canning lid, toy wheel, old CD, plastic lid, sculpey clay), a small cup hook (predrill dowel rod) and some hot glue.
It won't be the prettiest thing, but it works in a pinch!
