The yarn is machine wash (cold and gentle cycle) and it is recommended you dry your finished projects flat. Red Heart suggests Chic Sheep Yarn by crocheted with a 5 mm (H) hook.
I should mention that I have always had a sensitivity to wool and wool-blends. I’m not certain if it is they wool itself, or the dander that sometimes remains on the wool that causes my issues but whatever the case I had no adverse reaction to the Chic Sheep Yarn. It still felt warm to the touch to me when I was crocheting with it but I did not break out in a rash and my skin did not crack or turn red. Not only was I able to crochet with the wool to make this month’s #SCARFOFTHEMONTHCLUB2017 free pattern, I have also been able to wear the scarf against the skin of my neck without any problems whatsoever. I am currently working on a hat to go with the scarf – and I plan to keep and wear it with the scarf. Get the free Coffee With Cream Infinity Scarf pattern >HERE<
I cannot guarantee you will have the same experience with the wool if you have a sensitivity – as everyone is different in how they respond to different allergens – but for me it was a very pleasant surprise. I love the bright and bold range of colors and the softness of the Chic Sheep Yarn so I am excited to be able to use it for projects for myself and others who ask.
Chic Sheep Yarn by Marly Bird was a joy to work with. I didn’t find any stray pieces of straw, or other miscellaneous materials mixed in with the plys. There were no knots, uneven plys or tied sections in the yarn. The ball contained one continuous piece of yarn. It was perfectly plied and smooth and it felt clean (not gritty) and had very little odor to it.
