I love this yarn, the way it knits and the way it feels.

Has anyone ever used it? I am well into a vest and thinking that it is running a bit big and wondering if, since it is mostly cotton, it will shrink when washed.

Anyone know?

I've used it and love it but just made a pair of slipper socks out of it so don't know about the shrinkage. Love the way it feels!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this yarn! No shrinkage, but hand washed!

Thanks! I was actually hoping it WOULD shrink if I washed and dried it. But I went ahead and frogged two weeks worth of knitting, when it came off the needles it was even bigger than I thought althoug when I measured my gauge it was spot on so I dropped down to the next size and am using a size smaller needle.

It's too late now, but next time, before frogging, try knitting a swatch, measuring it carefully, and then washing, blocking and drying it to see how much you can get it to shrink. Sorry you had to frog!
