how much shrinkage should I expect from a worsted weight wool. I bought some Lion Brand wool and I like working with it. I am knitting a plain scarf for DD, but I thought I might felt it and add a pretty knitted flower embellishment.

How much will it shrink?

Hi Colleen

I think that how much something felts depends on how long you soak it in the hot water for.
