Yes it washed off my hands really well and I've heard that acrylic doesn't dye so *fingers crossed*.

I really don't know if that's possible but my hands were getting sort of a metallic smell to them. But, who knows.

EDIT: I washed it this morning in cold water with a little detergent. It washed right out! I am so relieved. Thank goodness I went with the acrylic!

I switched over to plastic needles that aren't quite as easy to work with but are encased in a clear plastic that, at least, won't stain. They'll work to finish the project. I didn't buy these needles online, but yes, I think I will be writing a review.

Thanks for all the help.
