it smells funny :?? almost like ketchup…if that makes sense? haha i was knitting with it last night and i was like “what is that smell??” am i just tripping out or is this a problem anyone else has had? i’m worried that washing it will make the beautiful colors run…
I think a lot of the South American wool has a vinegar like smell. And I think that it’s in there to set the color, so rinsing it out should be fine, just use lukewarm/coolish water.
I agree, it does have a vinegar smell. That may dissapate as the yarn “airs” if not I’d use a wool wash when you block it (thye have some lovely lavender scented ones).
it does go away! it is from the dye process. you could let it air out first or just knit and let it air out as you go
haha ok good! i was wondering what it was and i figured it had to do with the dyeing process. thanks for clearing that up for me!!
I found it helps to put fabric softner sheets in my yarn. I also put it in my knitting bag.
The smell doesn’t go away… it’ll get worse. You should send all of your Malabrigo to me and save yourself.
bwahahahahahahahaha. silver’s a bad bad girl!
Wha?? I’m just tryin to help! :shrug:
