Re: What do felted wool diapers look like?

Soaking should not cause felting. It's possible the yarn base just had alot of loose fibers (what causes pilling with use) that spread out while soaking. A fabric shaver will fix that problem.

For felting, you need to apply heat, moisture, and agitation at the same time. This will cause the fibers spread and latch together. Generally, felted items shrink noticeably from the original size and have lower to no stitch definition. This is more obvious with hand-knit items.
