Setting dyes in cotton yarns
Question!: I love to knit dishcloths and my daughters love to use them. I use Peaches n' Cream (that' what is available) and are frustrated because the darker colors bleed and fade so badly. You have to be able to thoroughly launder a dishcloth. Is there any way to knit a dishcloth and then "set" the dyes in the yarn? Help!
