Loosens up after washing? Hmmm.....good to know, since I'm planning to make a sweater with it, and was going to make it a size up in the pattern for a roomy fit. Might just stick to the regular size and give it a wash.
Thanks for the info! I was hoping to make a sweater as well as a blanket (got a lot of the stuff!). The sweater pattern was sized a little small and the next one up a little too big, so hopefully if I make it, it will fall somewhere in between.
