how to soften yarn?
Is there any technique for softening up yarn? I just bought some tweed like 100% wool yarn and actually it feels rather itchy on my skin. Its been soaked in some fabric softener, but I'm not sure i should do that too much. Does anyone have any tricks up their sleeves on how to tackle scratchy yarn??
Thanks in advance!
