Ok............small catastrophe here - hats that I knitted from handpaintedyarn.com - the bulky wool - well I handwashed in the hopes of removing the faint vinegar aroma, and folks, the smell that was UNDER the vinegar is horrible! It smells more like dirty animal than wet wool, if you know what I mean.
Any ideas on what might remove the smell? I am going to go ahead and deliver - but am going to take an assortment of other yarn and will just make them both another hat from whatever they pick from the stash. I wouldnt wear this. I can't expect them to.
