Problems with Pink

Some wool yarn just refuses to felt. This pink 100% yarn is apparently one of them. Yes, it has felted a little bit, but this was after THREE passes throught the washing machine. I hate seeing the little holes in the crochet. I noticed the same thing with a white yarn that I had. Is there something about pale colors?

I've read that white yarn won't felt, either -- that the bleaching process does something to the fibers that keeps them from bonding together during the felting process.

Maybe that pink yarn was bleached before it was dyed pink?
