For those of you who have used Knit Picks Merino Style, have you noticed if the colors have run when you've washed or blocked it? I would like to use some for a striped hat with both dark and light colors and wanted to avoid any bleeding of the dark parts onto the light ones.

Thanks!

I used the Merino style and WOTA for a Booga bag and none of the colors ran. I used hot wash, cold rinse. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the response. I really would like to find a superwash merino dk, but I may just have to go with knit picks. :thinking:

I just got some of this, and I think it's very nice. It was my 'terrorist' yarn. I look forward to knitting with it. Very reasonable, too.

Ooh, thanks! That may just work.
