blocking superwash wool
Does superwash wool block well? I just started an entralac scarf with it and it will need a good blocking job, so I don't want to continue if it won't block. Also, same question for soysilk. Thanks

I've found that both block well.

Great!
Great to find someone had already asked the question I had! I have a superwash afghan to block and I'm about to order 2 sets of blocking mats from KP to accomodate it. Didn't want to and then find out it won't block!

Hi Ingrid

For an afghan there's no need to 'block' it beyond just washing and drying, you don't need to pin it out.

Laura...those posts are almost 4 yrs old. For the record though I've blocked it and it's fine.

Yeah, for a second there, I got excited and thought 'Ingrid's back!', then looked at the date...
