Disappointed by Pure Wool line AGAIN! 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
I rarely feel bad enough about a yarn that I come back and leave a negative response but this is my 2nd bad experience with the Rowan's Pure Wool line. Both the 4 ply and the DK versions behave well UNTIL they are washed. Then the fabric becomes so limp that all stitch definition is lost. I understand that's the accepted compromise when using superwash wools but what is not acceptable is the amount the fabric grows measured in inches and completely changes the sizing. I did have some success with cautiously machine drying the 4-ply. But, this is baby gift and I doubt the parents will appreciate the involved care especially with a newborn in the house. Isn't that the point of using superwash, easier care? I expected more from Rowan... BTW, the dk project is a goner.
