    So terrible! That is so sad. Maybe you can salvage it as a child’s coat?

    I hope you got a lot of wear out of it before disaster struck. I have felted several things over the last few years and it is an awful feeling when you realise what has happened :(

  4. Suzie says:

    Thank you all for your support during this tragedy.

    Two things need to be done:

    1) Make some felt mittens
    2) Knit another one from superwash.
