I have a problem, and I was wondering if anyone has a remedy for me!
I knit the Dollar-and-a-Half cardigan back in April, using Cascade Cloud 9 yarn. It is a very soft yarn, however, it sheds like no tomorrow! The sleeve of my husband's suits become a red furry mess when he sits next to me in church. My own white blouse is literally covered with a red furry mess!
What can I do about this shedding? Is there no end to it??
Does anyone have any tips for me? I think I read somewhere that yarns that shed like this contain "short hairs" in the yarn that easily disengage from the strand, thereby "shedding" onto anything it touches.
But this is ridiculous.
The only thing I have thought of is to put it in the dryer on AIR for minutes, hours or days...til it has exhausted itself into my lint trap!
What do you think? You see by the photo below that the yarn has fully "bloomed"!
In the meantime, this sweater is in "sweater jail"!
