The terrible, horrible truth is: I’ve got bed bugs. That means that when the exterminator shows up in two days anything that can’t take a full half hour or more in the dryer on the highest possible setting gets quarantined in the basement for a year. Anyone know what yarns, if any, can be tumble dried on high for a half hour or more…so I can make myself replacements? HUGE THANKS FOR HELPING!
If you’re going to make replacements, you won’t need to dry them in the dryer. But most acrylics should be able to take half an hour in the dryer. Make a sample and try it.
Red Heart Super Saver, and good luck!
I’d test them first like Sue suggested, but I think most acrylics would be fine now as would most superwash wools.
OMG I feel for you. The worst I’ve yet had to deal with was head lice and that was a big enough, bad enough job. Bedbugs must be that much worse.
Is the need for anything new to be able to go through the dryer for 1/2 hr. because you might need to retreat everything?
RHSS is tough, so I agree with Charlotte on that., and you don’t want to risk ruining expensive yarns.
Best of luck to you.
