Id like to felt a cover for my laptop. Does anyone know if there is a problem with static when covering your laptop with wool?

FYI I did not knit a cover...

As an IT, especially break and fix, a felted laptop cover is not a good idea, unless, as Mocha says, it is completely lined inside, and no wool touches the laptop. Still, I wouldn't risk it. Tiny pieces of fiber migrate everywhere into the laptop interior. I have seen laptops that die unnatural deaths from lint and fiber. Please no!

To err is human, just try not to over do it.

It's a big no-no to me..with the static and all those halo around it.
Would you consider giving it a fabric or proper lining if you insist on knitting it?

Some good thoughts. The static question reminds me that I should consider using a fabric softener when felting to help reduce static--I wonder if this would hamper the felting process. If so, I might mix up some with water and lightly spray the inside of the sleeve occasionally and let it thoroughly dry. Any more thoughts on this?

This would just be for storage/carrying but I hadn't thought about lint.
Hmmmm.

No, but overheating and lint would be big concerns for me.
