Asked my crochet group on Facebook
If they had any favourite yarns and their least favourite yarns. Its led to me doing a sample wash test on Scheepjes XL...
Love the yarn myself and felt i needed to share this post after doing a wash test on a small sample of 3 colours of this Cotton/acrylic yarn that i love
BEFORE WASHING: slightly hairy look to this yarn
actually found the 'hairiness had disappeared
I love the yarn, it crochets beautifully, used the recommended 5mm hook, it's soft and the Stonewash look is fabulous.
A 70% Cotton, 30% acrylic yarn, washed on a 20deg, wash.
For a cotton yarn it is, quite 'hairy' but wasn't a problem to work with at all.
After washing most of the hairiness seemed to have disappeared....which really surprised me
After washing close ups
I have no problem with recommending this yarn to any Hooker no signs of pilling at all.
Hope that helps anyone wanting to buy this yarn
