I did do two "extra" wash/rishes after immersion was complete and it *feels* completely normal. It's almost dry now hanging in the tub and I can't decipher any difference, so hopefully I'm all set! ...

Thanks so much, Cyndi!

I am quite certain what I experienced with the yarn was my fault, not the yarn, and due to its "mistreatment," which did involve extreme heat and sometimes moisture at times,...
