Re: Can wool be dried flat outside?

Direct sunlight can change the colors too depending on how they were dyed. I know from experience......it was really sad

Re: Can wool be dried flat outside?

thanks for all the wool advice, I'm still new to wool. My wool is mostly upcycled not knit so I dont think felting is too much of a problem.

Yeah, as long as you don't mess with it while it's warm, you should be fine. It can bleach them sometimes, though, depending on the dye, so I usually dry them inside out. It also works really well to remove EBF stains if you had a leak.
