If this were not a knitting blog, the title of this post would be ridiculous. Since it is, it's just sad. I accidentally threw my alpaca monkey socks in the washer AND dryer (i know, way to go me) and they are totally felted. They are super soft and cozy, but all that lace work is GONE! They just look like fuzzy blue socks now. sigh. At least now I know - alpaca lace socks = bad idea.
