so my friend was rummage through some yarn she has acquired over the years. must of it was junk except some realy precious vintage green skiens... on problem, it stinks... is there anything that can be done for this yarn to salvage it?
any advice would be grand!!!
Try putting the yarn into a clean plastic bag with a generous quantity of baking soda, shaking it up, and leaving it for 24 hours.
If that doesn't work, you can skein it loosely, wash it in something gentle (brands are different here, but I believe Eucalan is highly recommended), hang it up to dry completely and then re-ball it. It's a pain in the arse, but it should do the trick. If that doesn't work, the yarn is always going to smell.
