  1. That is beautiful – both the scarf itself and the dyeing.

    I am in the process of looking for charities that accept knitted items of non-superwash, non-acrylic yarn, whether handspun or not. Perhaps matters are different in the UK, but in the US, charities typically only want the “easy-care” stuff. Very frustrating for a spinner who wants to work with different breeds of wool – and finding non-merino/non-BFL machine-washable wool fiber is not easy.

  2. hrleven – maybe if you used Southdown or other Down breed fibre, the handmade items would wash in a washing machine – on the wool programme – ok? Might be worth an experiment?
