Does wool ease shrink any? about how much?

Woolease is 75% acrylic, so I wouldn't expect it to shrink at all. I've made sweaters from Encore, which has the same ration of acrylic to wool, and have never had a problem with shrinkage.

I erased and retyped shrinkage several times. I decided to go with it. I guess watching Seinfeld is a requirement to be up on cultural knowledge! I wonder how many phrases they've added to the American language?

Some punishment. :rollseyes: :lol:

Well..I guess if you were knitting with barbed-wire it would be pretty awful.

Some of the stuff that's gone on here before proves that we were corrupted long before you joined the club! You'll fit right in! ;)

Im thinking the offense would have to be PREEEETY serious before we'd deny anyone here their knitting! I mean, like, they would have to BURN DOWN AN LYS or something! :shock:
