Gorgeous Lana Grossa Feltro Carnevale is virgin wool wrapped in a thin nylon thread creating a felting wool with just a tiny bit of additional strength. Not so much nylon that felting won't occur but just enough that your projects have some protection. Perfect for slippers, bags and other felted projects which take a lot of wear and tear. The beautiful color palette is vibrant when hooked and resembles tweed when felted! You can also use this yarn to hook up any bulky or bulky weight pattern with a lot of loft, just remember that this yarn will shrink when put into the washing machine (estimated shrinkage 30 _ 40%).
