So I just started working with wool yarns (patons SWS and Classic wool) and I haven't done any blocking yet because I had questions. Is it necessary to block everything you do with animal fibers? I've made a scarf and a hat so far and I don't know if I should block them. Neither are anything too terribly fancy. The scarf is just seed stitched and the hat is a plain beanie.
I guess what I am asking is whether or not there is any benefit from blocking this sort of project
