I posted in the sub-forum but haven't received a response... I'm trying to find information on making up cycled wool covers. I'm pretty new to the subject so could use some help. My main question though is about fleecing. Mainly, should all sweaters be fleeced before being made into covers? If not, how do I know whether or not to fleece?
Do you mean felting? Felting wool makes it very dense and more washable but it also won't be stretchy any more. It is your choice what to work with. I like my wool lightly felted to be more bulletproof but still with some stretch to it.
Look up the Katrina quick sew soaker pattern I have made Katrina longies, they were awesome! If you search Google a bit more you can find lots of blog tutorials also. Katrina patterns are free and very popular, easy to sew for a noob and allow for lots of elaboration and customization if you are crafty and experienced.
