Helpful estimates for felting projects
What size should I cut my fabric?
Width for a Scarf
Tear the 114cm wide piece of fabric into thirds for an average scarf.
For a slightly wider scarf tear the fabric in half.
Length of Scarf
Choose a slightly longer length of fabric if you plan to cover its entire surface with wool.
The more wool applied to the fabric the more it will shrink both widthwise and lengthwise.
