How does it wear? Rowan Tapestry

2008 straight off the needles

Garment:  Wrap

Fibre: Soy protein/wool blend

Date completed: January 2008

Tension: knitted at about the  recommended tension for the wool.

Washing: Handwashed, rolled in towels and dried flat.

Worn: A lot  throughout the last 3 years.  Also gets tossed around in the back of the car.

2010 after 3 years of wear

Result:

This wrap is starting to show its age.  There is no pilling but the stitches now look slightly felted.  This was a sticky yarn to start with so that is not surprising.  The wrap is still very soft and there is no apparent change in the colours.
