Working on using up random balls of handknitting yarn. This one was a “lost ball band” one. Cotton or acrylic? Burn test revealed a natural fibre, most possibly cotton.
No stretch when on the knitting machine.
The photo is of 2 adult sized hats. The Left one is machine washed and dryer, the Right one, is prewash.
Quite a difference in feel and colour.
What a surprise it would have been for a handkniter making a garment who had not swatched.
