How to "flaten out" wool scarf edge?
Hi everyone...I am about half way thru a "cable" scarf..The "bottom" border is a nice seed st...It is made using Araucania Nature Wool, however, the farther I got into the "cable" pattern is seems that the bottom edge is not laying flat. Since is 100% wool, any suggestions on how to "block" the bottom of it to lay down???? Thanks

you could wash the bottom half and lay it flat and pin it. Be vewy vewy careful. Don't use hot water and don't agitate it. Use cold water and basically let it soak for a few minutes. then gently rinse it and dry it by rolling it up in a towel. Now lay it flat on a towel on a table or something flat and use some pins avery inch or so in the flat shape you like. Let it sit like that for a day or two till it dries. Voila! GOod luck
