I was donated a laundry hamper of vintage yarn. MOST went to the Girl scouts, as I KNOW I won’t use this vinage stuff.
BUT…I’ve been thinking of making a fisherman’s type cardigan sweater…and whoohoooo…there was enough in there for a sweater…
it’s 95 wool, and 5 acrylic…it’s musty smelling…soo…can I just go ahead and knit with it and THEN clean it? or should I clean it first? And with all that real wool in it…what’s the best way?
The band says size 6 needles, so it’s really not a very heavy weight yarn if that matters. i have about 8 or so skeins.
