How to Block Acrylic Yarn – Wet, Spray & Steam Blocking — 3 Comments

  1. Thanks for the email on blocking. I think that may explain why my sisters sweater I made her – stretched out terribly after she washed it – bet her dryer was too hot and she killed the acrylic. The label says it can be machine washed and dryed, but I am sure at a lower temp than she did. I have never thought about blocking before I sewed the peice together, think I’ll try that next time. I bought a hand steamer and have tried that but I don’t know how long you’re supposed to house it over the fabric and I see you steam after it’s pinned, I tried it before… Gonna try again. thanks

    • Hi Meri~ I would suggest making a small swatch of the fabric in the pattern and steaming it too see how the yarn steams and to get a feel for how long you need to steam. 🙂
