More on Felting

One of the usual directions for felting is to put the item to be felted in a pillow case cover.
I personally have never followed that direction. Maybe I should.
When Carol tried her latest felting activity, she put the item in the bag. The first picture shows how much "lint/flutz/crap" came out of the yarn. The second picture shows what came out when the tote finally felted. It actually looks to me like the yarn disintegrated.

So now the questions are: Does this happen with every yarn? or just some yarns? What condition is my new washing machine in now? Anyone out there have any info for us?
