I knitted a sleeveless shell in the round. Before knitting the cap sleeves and neck, I was told to block the item. I hnd washed the item, but the dye in the yarn ran, and the front of the sweater does not match the back. The proprietor of the store said she has never seen anything like it. She advised that I wash it again in cool water. I did, and again the dye ran. I took it back to the knit shop and she now tells me to wash it in a vinegar solution. She said that she has had no other complaints about the yarn. The yarn isLLH yarn Cadiz, c otton, acrylic and rayon. It is blue variegated yarn. The proprietor of the store just says I will have to wear a shell with a front that is different than the back. Has this happened to anyone else?
PS I contacted the yarn company via email
