Blocking: With the 20% wool content, this blocked so nicely! I soaked it in warm water with a dash of fabric softener for about a half an hour. I gently squeezed out excess water then rolled it in a large beach towel and squeezed out even more water. Then I laid it flat to dry. I didn’t use any pins to block this. I just let it air dry. If you used an acrylic yarn, you can still block it the same way I did, it just may not retain it’s shape. :)
