Help! Silk ribbon yarns!
Hi everyone, Someone gave me this gorgeous cache of silk ribbon yarn. It's exquisite and since I have never knit with silk ribbon, I couldn't wait. But I find that although it is soft to the touch, when knit, it is rough and scratchy and starchy. So, my question is (ok, two questios),
1 What DOES one do with ribbon yarn?
2. Will it get soft again if I wash it after I knit it?
