Long ago an unintentionally felted afghan taught me that, when in doubt, it's wisest to stick with an easy-care, machine-washable blend for gifts—and to reserve the really precious, pure, pricey yarns for folks I know better.
Not all machine-washable, easy-care acrylic blends are the same. In fact, some have given the whole category a pretty bad reputation. But at TNNA last month I spotted a new machine-washable entry from Berroco that raises the quality bar. It's called Vintage Wool and I review it this week.
