My Wool Wash Experiment
The Summary: I tested 7 different detergents with my own hand dyed, very dark red, yarn. Only one
had some color bleed. After additional testing, I was able to get that bleeding to stop by adding a certain amount of vinegar to the bath.
pH test strips at Amazon.
My Miette cardigan by Andi Satterlund is in progress.
I made my little fabric strawberry buttons with this Dritz Cover Button Kit.
Another Simplicity 1537 dress in Telio Denim Floral from Fabric.com.
Making yoga/jammy pants with Simplicity 4429 (an old pattern that I think is out of print but may be available elsewhere on the net). I used French Terry Knit.
