6/5: Got a pile of delectable wool clothes this morning at the secondhand store and am washing/felting them now. Also found some enormous lengths of rough burlap to use for rugh hooking foundations...does anybody know what would happen if I washed burlap? I can visualize it completely disappearing into a few strings. Also, does anybody know how best to mend an old barkcloth type bedspread? It isn't exactly barkcloth but is the same vintage and has that textury look. I ADORE it, got it for only $10 at a show. It has a hole where the fabric has disintegrated. Any tips most appreciated.

Jack. His head was swiveling on his neck like an owl in order to avoid getting his face in the picture. He must come from Amish stock.

I don't think burlap would be good agitating in a washing machine. Maybe just fill the machine with cool water and let the burlap soak, then spin the water out and let it air dry.
