It has been a long time since I used a 100% acrylic like Caron Simply Soft. How well does an item made from this yarn appear after several washings? I want to make sweaters for my grand daughters, but I don't want to spend that amount of time on sweaters if they end up looking shabby after a few washings. I would love to use a superwash wool, but I can't afford it at this time.
OoOh.I've never actually made much with CSS that required washing.I just use it primarily for cat toys, but my current project is a gift for a cousin, a scarf and matching fingerless mitts.Wondering if anyone has any before or after pics?
I'd love to let her know for sure it will look relatively the same after machine washing.
I dunno, people say it pills, but I made a scarf and hat from it, and don't see any pilling. I haven't washed them much, probably need to throw them in the laundry this year, so maybe it's repeated washing that makes the pills? They're knit at a large gauge too, which people say will make something pill for sure.
