Steaming does kill acrylic if you do it for too long and you never want to touch the iron to acrylic fiber or it will melt. Unless you're trying to create a fiber that is drapey and bodiless like maybe some shawl you don't want to kill it..

I can see how lightly seaming can be permanent, but I don't see how it's even possible for it to be permanent with wet blocking. It would be beneficial for preparing for seaming though for sure!

When I'm done with my current projects I'm going to make 4 squares and try the different methods and we'll see what happens. I've been curious for a long time.
