Work in Progress: Felted Lavender Beret

So this is while I'm making the beret, the pillow is 17'' square it's almost done. After the beret is done it measures 13'' across with a 40'' flat circumference .
You can easily see the individual stitches (not for long).

The process of felting I used makes boiled wool.

So you can pretty much see the felting take place, yah?
The stitch definition virtually vanishes and you get a warm, soft beautiful piece of fabric.

OK, one last dip in the pot for good measure...

When you felt, you aren't getting less wool because it gets smaller. There are just a lot less air holes.

Check it out, the fabric is so tight the hot air from within the pot can't get out.

Pretty cool.

The beret is currently drying and looking just fine, keep a look out in a post soon to come!
