Yarns have come a long way
Okay, I know some acrylic yarns are not very nice or soft to work with but usually after a fiber wash they soften up. I just washed some handknit blankets that were made for my daughter 29 years ago and expecting her first child in 3 weeks. Well not even fiberwash made them feel any better. I wanted to have them all done for my soon to be born granddaughter but I am not so sure they will feel soft enough. Funny I never thought that when I used them for my daughter, guess I didn't know any better and just loved having them hand made for her. Anyone else ever done noticed this with very old things?
