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?

So, my question is this - is there any way to remove that stale “I’ve-been-sitting-in-a-bag-for-27-years” smell from the yarn? Suggestions?

any advice would be grand!!!

I've been working a lot with junk yarn lately. It has it's uses for large sculptural pieces that would be too expensive to make with nicer stuff.

Actually, I have a similar problem with some yarn a cat peed on but it's too nice to get rid of.

i have a skein of this really cute yarn that i just can't throw up but one of my guinea pigs peed on it years ago.. seeing as how the guinea pig has been dead for a couple now...

i haven't used the yarn, and it's only a small portion that stained, there isn't a smell to it... but the stain is obvious, but very small...

those crazy pets!!!

well, i cross posted this in my journal and another community, if i see any helpfull advice i pass it on to you!
