I decided to use more natural fibers and bought Patons Classic Wool in 4 colours. I touched them, smelled them and put them to my cheek to check softness and there were fine. Before leaving I picked up 2 skeins of white yarn but didn’t check them cause they were from the same line.
Well, the white yarn smells. Sort of like a farm (or a sheep, I guess, although I never purposefully smelled one) I love visiting farms but when the farm unexpectedly visits me, I get alarmed
So, I have a number of questions… Is it because it’s natural wool and not dyed? Will it go away/wash away? Can I do something about it?
Also, I use three colours for this sweater – white, orange and brown. When I washed an orange swatch in cold water with soap, the water became slightly orange. Could dark brown yarn colour white yarn when washed together?
