I found this link on Knitty that might be of some use for choosing yarn to felt. Its well but together. http://spaces.msn.com/members/beanknitting/
In the box on Knitting Resources is a link to a pdf file of felting yarns.
I made a copy to keep in my wallet for reference.
Thanks JacquieBean if you read this for putting it together.

Thanks for the link. I was very happy to see that Plymouth Galway is recommended for felting as I have a bunch already for an unfinished and no longer WIP project... it was going to be a yoked sweater for my then nine year old daughter...Who now is 25.

Here are some yarns which felt well in combination with Patons,Cascade,Galway or Nature Spun: Di Ve Fiamma a nice "monet look" to the felted fabric), Berroco Foliage, Moda Dea Cartwheel, Valley Yarns Rainbow, Wendy Fusion.
These felt well alone: Wisdom Yarns Poems, Twilleys of Stamford Freedom Spirit (a light worsted) also works well carried along with one strand of the above because it is so lightweight) and Freedom Wool (heavier). I've also made a little pot with Ragdoll by Coats and Clark and Patons SWS!
I am sure Lambs Pride would also felt well in combination with the above but due to it's fuzzy nature it would "hide" their lovely color varigations!

Carol,

Does Moda-Dea Cartwheel felt by itself or must one hold another wool with it?

thanks,

hi there,
I got the message:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /jmay/FeltingYarns.pdf on this server.

did anyone know how to get "permission" or some other way to access the pdf file?
actually i even tried logging into my hotmail account and still got the same message.
i emailed jacquie via hotmail and asked her if she could email me the pdf file...but it's strange that i couldn't access the file

I am on an ibook g4 using safari.

thanks a bunch

The website http://www.modadea.com/cartwheel.htm
shows it felted on its own...

I've used it in combination with known felting yarns like patons and it gave a nice look.

I got this message, too, and I'm using Windows XP. Can anyone send us the list over email privately?

I know this topic is a little old, but thought I'd add to it: I've felted Moda Dea Cartwheel on it's own before - I've used the grey/white kind as well as the pink/white kind, They looked nice after felting! I've made felted bags with it.

I'm writing again: I >still< cannot access the list. If I have to register somewhere to sign in, there is no way to do it on the page listed. Need more information; hoping someone can help. Maybe the best thing is if someone would put all the info in a Word doc and send it to me as an attachment.

Ceil, that's a standard 403 error you're getting, and it's not actually likely that you're getting the error because the author of the PDF on felting yarns wants you to be denied access. Either she or her internet service provider changed some security settings for the server, probably without thinking about how it would affect access to that PDF. That's why you're not finding a way to register to access the file--no one but the owner or someone who works for her internet service provider is going to be able to do that.

Thankfully, feltable yarns are plentiful. I'm sure if you ask around here on the forums or do some research on the web you'll be able to put together a similar list in no time.

Hi Everybody - I am the Jacquiebean who posted a PDF and then got it lost in space by changing ISPs. I never dreamed anyone was still looking for it!

I will fix the link within a few days, but if anyone wants it sooner, please feel free to email me and I will flip it back to you. No sweat.

Thanks for the additional felting yarn reviews listed here. Unless someone objects, I think I will revise my original document and add a number more. I was pretty new to felting at the time I compiled the original, but have a lot more experience to add now.

Best regards,
Jacquie
