Fabrics for Felting Collection, Machine Knitting
Collection of textile designs specially created to be used for knitted fabrics which are going to be felted. There are two reference sections, one on techniques, explaining how to felt your knitted fabrics in the washing machine among other things, and one on applications and materials.
The designs are an eclectic mixture, some small intricate designs and others which use to the maximum the possibility of bold designs without worrrying about keeping the floats short (as the felting process eliminates the need for this). There are a number of designs which explore the textural possibilities of fabrics knitted using one felting yarn combined with another non-felting yarn. This enables interesting bobble and three dimensional patterns to be created. Suitable for both 24st. and 40st. machines and electronics.
