Fibre: Cotton Acrylic
Date completed: December 2007
Tension: knitted at recommended tension
Washing: Machine wash and dry
Worn: Constantly year round.
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.
