I exhibit at a lot of art and craft shows. I meet many people who ask me about felting. Some who have tried it with success, some who have failed, and many who are collecting sweaters and waiting to try.
I am often asked which detergent I use and many assume Woolite® , but I have never used it. A quick search of their website does not reveal an ingredient list.
It may be perfectly earth friendly, but I prefer to use a brand that really focuses on earth friendly products.
I use Seventh Generation’s Natural 2X Concentrated Liquid Laundry Detergent I love the lavender scent.
If your sweater is clean, use just a little bit, maybe only a drop of detergent. If it is dirty use the amount recommended on the package.
If you have a good detergent that is eco-friendly let me know what it is and maybe I’ll give it a try!
