How to soften yarn?

Is there any technique for softening up yarn? I just bought some tweed like 100% wool yarn and actually it feels rather itchy on my skin. Its been soaked in some fabric softener, but I’m not sure i should do that too much. Does anyone have any tricks up their sleeves on how to tackle scratchy yarn??
Thanks in advance!

we were talking about this in another thread… try using hair conditioner.
