  1. Hope you enjoy this video! Visit my website and use the "Search" feature on top if you are looking for any of the free patterns shown in this video. And check out Kristin Omdahl's website for her patterns, yarn, and the very lovely jasmine-scented Wrapture from Eucalan.

  2. Great tutorial, thank you. Can that extreme method at the end of your video be used for 100% wool? Also, how wet should we make a wool item using the regular steam, and is it necessary to flip the project and do the other side?
