Blocking wool/microfiber blend
What method would be best for blocking a garment made from 50% wool 50% microfiber (in stockinette stitch)?

If it's hand washable, I'd wash it and lay it flat to dry in the shape and size you want, pinning it if necessary. Since it's only 50% wool, though, I don't know how well it will hold a blocking. If it's ok the way it is, there's no law that says it must be blocked, though.
