Help! I bought some yarn at a craft/yard sale at the local VFW. This woman was selling her yarn that she would never use. I stuck my nose in a few of the plastic bags and some smelled musty/old.
I found one bag that I loved the color and thought there wasn't much of an odor, but I got it home and realized I was wrong.
It is called Phildar Coquine and is 65% acrylic and 35% viscose/rayon. I was thinking maybe the smell would come out if I just left it out in the open or maybe put it in a cool dryer cycle with a fabric softner cloth. It does say it is machine washable, but I'm leary of that. I really want to make my dd a summer tank top so I'm sorta in a hurry to get the smell out!
