I was wondering what I must do to give NEW mohair and antique felted look. I have heard you can
use the washing machine and tumble dry the mohair.
At what temperature should I wash the mohair in the washing machine and what if I use the dryer.
I have open sparse mohair which I dyed with coffee. The colour is perfect but the mohair didn't felt
as much as I wanted. I've washed it at 30 degrees (European temp.)
I've never done this before and was a bit scared to use a higher temp. .
Who has tips & trics..........????? Love to hear about your experiences.
I pluck patches of mohair out as I have found that using the drier tends to make it even fluffier and it seems harder to make it clump or lie down. I also have used one of those foamtype nail buffer things which works well on breaking down some of the fibres which makes it looked aged as well. Starting off with a sparse mohair helps as well.
