It’s always a little scary washing superwash yarn. It loses all of its energy and bounce, and grows to like twice the size. You absolutely have to put this yarn in the dryer, or else never wash it. So I knew that going in, and still it was scary taking it out of the washing machine. Then I popped over to the laundromat, and it came out just as good as before, maybe a little softer than before. I still would prefer that my sister hand-washed it before drying, but I know that won’t happen, so I had to make sure it could survive a trip in both the washer and dryer. And luckily, this super expensive superwash came out beautifully!
