The Garden Bell asked about a vinegar bath/rinse “to help set the color and brighten” the newly dye yarn.
The Berry Blue that I did in class did not have the vinegar treatment - the instructor did not include that in her class. However, I did add vinegar to the Orange and the Lemonade and will with the Lemon-Lime I’ll do after dinner tonite.
In addition to the bright colors, a yummy scent the yarn retains afterwards is a pleasant surprize.
I was going to knit a hat and scarf with the class-provided yarn but found that it was waaasy too itchy for me. Thought the Fishermen’s Wool might be better because when I felt it in the store it felt so much more softer than the wool-mohair did.
But, it too feels scratchy. Guess I’ll have to go for some of the Knitpick's Superwash Wool Garden Bell mentioned.
