Rayon yarn

barbara_melJanuary 3, 2007

I would like to have some imformation on what you all think about rayon yarn. I have lots of it in many colors. I also have lots of white that I plan to dye.

I fell in love with the texture. It is so soft and comfy next to the skin.

After I purchase so much of it, I read that it shrinks quite a bit.

I did hear the it dyes well.

I have tons of yarn most of it is acrylic, cottons, wool, polyester, nylons. polypropylene, and of course the blends.

100% rayon is new to me. I have completed a few projects with it and given them away to friends and I need to let them know how to care for it.

Thank you for any help.
