I have some Ballybrae yarn that I want to use for felting. Anyone have any experience felting this? It's marked "100% virgin unscoured wool with natural oils." I am not experienced enough with felting to know if this would work. Any thoughts?

A blast from the past. Loved Ballybrae; wish I had more! I can assure you that it felts beautifully, especially if you don't want it to!!! Don't ask how I got my experience. Let's just say that it was years ago and DH recovered from my inflicting injury upon his person nicely.

Thanks! I got a bunch of it from the thrift shop where my mom volunteers. Not enough to make a garment, but I thought I could felt bags or perhaps bowls!
