View Full Version : Bernat denim yarn question
02-16-2006, 01:12 AM
Has anyone used this before? I finished a K2 P2 ribbed scarf for my boyfriend last week and noticed he gets fuzzies all over his clothes, inside of his jacket and cute enough, all over his stubble :) The scarf itself doesn't look like its shedding, but it is. I don't want it to fall apart or look "worn" when its this new, any tips for this?

I've used it on my fingerless gloves. I made a pair and a half, and my boyfriend's are a little fuzzy, but we live in south texas, so they havent gotten really bad since he's only worn them a few times. I can imagine that the scarf would pill though. Sorry I have no remedies :(

Have you tried washing the scarf? I would think that would take care of the it. I am using it to make a sweater and so is KellyK. I sure hope it won't be a problem.

I was thinking that a washing might help, too.....

I've made a few things in it, and I think it's the nature of the yarn. If I recall correctly there's some cotton content in it, and it seems to shed a bit. I haven't had any problems with it pilling, and the hat that gets the most wear has been washed many times... the only problem I've had with it is that the kids have liked pulling out the strands in the pom pom! :rollseyes:

I've crocheted with it and never had a problem, but I've never knitted with it. I've always liked it though. Its one of my favorites!
