Hand embroidery on wool is so easy on the hands. Thread glides through the cloth with each stitch and knots hide in the bulky fabric. In the Rare Songbird project from my new book, Joyful Stitching, I use a hand-dyed wool for the background.
- Place the fabric in the washing machine with really hot water.
- Set the machine to the fastest agitation setting.
- Wash the wool with a little bit of detergent and a cold water rinse.
- Throw it in the dryer or air dry the fabric.
And now the the Give-Away part!
