Good tips everyone on the washing machine spin. I am always scared to do that for fear of felting or shrinking. My washer spins so fast. But its only hot water that felts right?
I often lay them lengthwise in a towel. Then fold the sides of the towel over the longies and place in the washer. This way the wool fibers are not being pulled into the drain holes in the washer.
