That depends very much on your way of knitting or crocheting. The thicker the needle, the more wool you use. If you knit or crochet tightly, you also use more than if you work loosely. Do you split the fuse, or do you use the whole fuse? In short, it can vary quite a bit. You can use this as a guide:

Plaid 120 x 150 cm: approx. 3 kg.
To kiss 50 x 50 cm (two sides): approx. 1 kilo.

Maintenance of your wick wool project

Many people ask us how to wash and care for your slub wool blankets and rugs. Fortunately, wick wool projects require little maintenance because wool repels natural dirt.

If you do have to wash your work, do this by hand and with a wool detergent. The wool can still felt, so avoid large temperature changes, friction and changes in acidity!

Lontwol has a tendency to “pile” occasionally. This means that it releases a kind of mini wool balls. If you want to prevent that, you can wet felt your work a bit. This closes the fibers and significantly reduces pilling.

To lightly felt your work, make a bucket of soapy water. Preferably with a natural soap such as olive soap. Don't make the water too hot because you will then rub it over your work with your hands. This will felt the wick just enough that the fibre will close.
