That's the kind you need to use!!

My mistake! Edited to say that you actually need to use the UNSWEETENED.

DO NOT USE Sugar-Free because it has an artificial sweetener in it.

Ummm, not crafty? How much stuff do you have on the craft forums right now? Just because you didn't start w/a plain piece of fabric and a piece of thread doesn't mean you are not crafty, there are all kinds of crafting. I for one think you are VERY crafty, mama! Thanks for the great tutorials you have posted lately. DS really bumps my creativity! Soakers look great!

Re: Dyeing a Wool Soaker - Picture Tutorial

Love these!

Sorry I have a question though. Does this only work for ready made garments? How is it different for those who dye the yarn before knitting? I am wondering about the heat shrinking wool.

Thanks!

I don't consider myself to be very good at these kinds of things. My seams are terrible, I can't sew a straight line to save my life, and I have a bunch of knitting stuff sitting in a closet because I just can't do it.

I'm not sure about dyeing yarn as I've never done it. Look for people who have dyed yarn and PM them.

The pre-made garments do not shrink, though. They will if you put them in the washer on hot and then dry them in the dryer, but as long as you gently let it get hot and then gently cool it down without touching it, it won't shrink or felt.
