I washed these harshly in my washing machine this morning. And I washed them again and again... I did read somewhere that Fisher and Paykel washing machines are not rough enough to felt quickly... But we did persevere and got there in the end.
I spent most of the morning blocking them on my feet, so they'd dry nicely to my foot shape.
As you can see by the pic, they are now nice and stiff, and will stand on their own. They feel sooo good on my feet too.
I'm pleased! :-)
