My Wool washing experiement.

Last week I decided to try a different way to knit with Briggs & Little yarn.    That is by pre-washing.    So here are the simple steps.
Wash skein in mild soapy water.  Rinse in clear water, twice.
Hand squeese out water then lay on a towel.  Fold the towel over and squeese more water out.

Then hang to air dry.
Well,  I had these three skeins washed and hanging in my bathroom for a day before we left for Cuba.  They were quite dry and I couldn't quite feel a difference in the texture, but maybe knitting with it will give more of a true test of the feel.     I'll be knitting a Rococo Shawl this when we go to South Carolina next month, so I'll update you then.
