I’ve been looking into knitting an afghan, still looking at designs. My question is, what is a good wool for an afghan? I was thinking KnitPicks Bare Superwash Merino Worsted, but I heard it pills and shrinks/felts easier than what it says on the label (anyone that can confirm or deny?). So I would think it’d need to be handwashed. I suppose I could do that, but…how would one hand wash a big afghan? lol
It would have to be economical, and preferrably no dye lot as I’d like to buy as I go, thats why I was thinking of using bare yarn. I’m leaning more towards wool, as I already have a couple acrylic afghans, I’d really like a wool one. Hmmmm…maybe I should make it for my bed…that way it’ll stay nicer, and keep me warm at night (sure been snowy and cold in Idaho this year).
Anyway, thanks for your expert opinion. I greatly appreciate it!
