Knitters, I have a potentially dumb question. If a wool piece has been blocked, do you have to re-block it if you wash it? Also, any tips for making wool softer and less irritating?

I WOULDN’T REBLOCK A PIECE AFTER INITIALLY BLOCKING. MY FAVOURITE WAY TO MAKE A PIECE SOFTER IS TO BLOCK IT WITH EUCATAN OR EVEN HANDWASH IT AFTER BLOCKING WITH THE STUFF.

Yes and no on the reblocking point, yes you will need to reshape and lie it flat. And if it’s lace you will likely need pins. Softer I agree ^^

Taught a friend to spin today. Her slubby pretty yarn is beautiful. I miss my bulky yarns. I love watching someone spin for the first time, its so nice to be reminded that there’s all sorts of “perfect” yarn.
