A friend of mine, has collected an enormous amount of wool for me. She asked around, and many people seem to have left overs and even new skeins of wool that they happily parted with. Yesterday I was given this huge bag full of wool. I felt like a kid in a toy store at Sinterklaas.
All of this, for me ???
|This is only half of it. My table isn't big enough !|
And to top it all off, there was a collection of beautiful buttons too. Big buttons, probably from coats, and lovely colours, even some wooden ones and mother-of-pearl, and collectables in bakelite.
If you look up, you'll see me floating around in seventh heaven !
Now there is a question, that perhaps you more experienced knitters can help me with. In the bag there were also 2 big white skeins of very soft creamy coloured wool. I think it has some mohair in it. But they are a bit dirty, and they are a bit smelly.
My question is : how do I clean them without destroying them? Could I try to wash it ? Any tips or tricks how I can dry it ? And also, how do I untangle this in a practical way and roll them into a ball ? Many thanks in advance for your help !
