I used Rowan Polar for an afghan. A big red celtic afghan!
I remember it shedding while I was knitting it...but not badly enough to stop knitting it!
I'm also knitting a winter white hooded coat. SYVLI.
It didn't shed. I don't recollect the fibers that might've
come off on my lap as I knit.
I still need to line the sleeves and seam her up!
I also knit a CLOCHE using the winter white Polar
with no shedding issues or problems.
I also knit an icy blue Polar 'suit'...a cabled cardi and st st skirt!
I love Rowan Polar. I'm sorry it's been discontinued.
The yarn that they developed to replace Polar is COCOON. Now, Cocoon sheds more than Polar. And the halo yarn (the mohair content) does make me sneezy. But I still love the yarn!
If your Polar is shedding, I believe it will quit. I haven't had a bit of problem with my red afghan!
