View Full Version : Bleeding yarn?

11-14-2009, 02:24 PM
I'm about to knit some pants using a skein of gold and a skein of red patons wool yarn, should I wash these before hand so the colors won't run? Or is that something I even need to worry about? I know when I used their dark gray yarn it bled into the water I washed it in. Thanks!

I suppose you could soak your balls in some soak or Eucalan?

If you were really worried about them bleeding into eachother...

I suppose you could do it after it was knit too...

In my experience, not too many mass produced yarns bleed. However...I have seen some Decor that did...so...do what you are comfortable with..
