Dry cleaning is strongly recommended for pure wool felts.
Hand washing will shrink the felt and make it thicker and bubblier in texture.
If you do choose to hand wash felt, immerse it in cool water with a mild soap, such as Woolite.
Wool colors will bleed, so wash each color separately. If you are felting or appliqueing several colors together, do so after hand washing each color separately. After joining different colors together, dry cleaning is recommended.
Do not wring or twist the felt. Gently squeeze water out and lay flat to dry away from heat.
It's a good idea to wash a small piece first so you can get an idea of shrinkage and thickening.
