I made a knitted cap to go with my Privateer costume (we're not pirates - 
we have our Letter of Marque...).  It's wool, and it should have felted 
when put into boiling water or into the hot dryer.  But all it does in 
water is release quantities of dye, and all it does in the dryer is to get 
dry.  Yes, I've tested it, and it's really wool.  Any advice?
