We ignored the ball band on this yarn and put it through the “Torture Test”.  Washed it in hot water with towels and dried it on a hot setting. Although I wouldn’t recommend treating your knitting this way, we found that this yarn held up beautifully!

(This is a co-op yarn, Passy – it’s an acrylic/nylon blend. We purchased this in bulk directly from the mill and don’t inventory it.)

To be sure of your yarn’s care requirements, try this test for yourself. That way you’ll know exactly what will happen if your finished item accidentally gets “tortured”.
