How does it wear – Katia Mississippi

Fibre: Cotton Acrylic

when new

Date completed: December 2007

Tension: knitted at recommended tension

Washing: Machine wash and dry

Worn: Constantly year round.

Result:

This top held up well until around October 2009 when it was washed in a gentle front loader and air dried.  The result was a plasticky look with a loose tension like the fibres had lost their width.

Since then it has been washed in my normal machine and thrown through the drier again. This restored it a fair bit.

A great yarn to use for clothing that needs constant washing, don’t treat it carefully, it seems to need the drier to keep its loft.

  1. I was eyeing some Katia Mississippi at a shop a few days ago. Thanks for posting the information on it. My son wants to wear “yarn that came from a sheep” but can’t. I’m, therefore, always looking at cottons and cotton blends.
