It was pointed out (thanks, Kate!) that I forgot to include the fiber content in my post about my newest Pi shawl. It's 100% superwash merino wool. What does that mean? Well, the wool comes from a merino sheep and well, I have no idea how they make it 'superwash' but 'superwash' means that it won't felt & if you want to risk putting it in the washing machine, you can. The reason I say 'risk' the washing machine is because there always seems to be a crayon, a pen, a tube of lipstick, a pack of gum, a Tootsie Roll, a couple of screws and/or a wad of tissues hiding out in the washer whenever I wash something important. But, if you don't have that problem at your house, you can machine wash your superwash knits.
So, what is a merino sheep, you ask?
Well, happy Sunday. I'm off to knit a hat, a few rounds on the Pi shawl and maybe even venture outside. The sun is finally shining & it's supposed to be over 50 degrees today. Yay, spring!
