Conquer your fear of washing by hand and blocking your knits! In this class we will discuss how to care for your knitwear and any of your delicate fabrics and fibers. We will talk about the basics of blocking and how beneficial it is to block your knit items and why. We will discuss different methods of blocking such as wet blocking, steaming, spritzing, using blocking wires and shaping your pieces. We will also discuss what the best options for wool wash are, and how to use them. Everything you need to know about really finishing your pieces and taking good care of them will be in this class, perfect timing before you gift your knits for the holidays!
Please bring with you: squares or a finished sample of something you would like to know how to block or wash properly.
