How do you preserve a crochet blanket?
Storing. Unused knitted or crocheted items should be cleaned and stored in closed plastic bags to keep them clean and free of dust. Never store them with items that contain zippers or buttons that can cause damage. To prevent unwanted pests, items can be stored with cedar balls or dried herbs such as lavender and sage.
What is the best way to store crocheted afghans?
What a terrific idea! First be sure the afghan has been cleaned. Do not store it in a plastic bag because moisture can accumulate inside, causing spotting or mildewing. It is much better to wrap it in acid-free white tissue paper or 100 percent cotton muslin for protection.
How should I store my crochet projects?
Some of the best storage options are air tight tubs or even giant Ziplock bags. Keeping your item safe from air exposure will minimize the risk for mold. As a side note: tubs and giant Ziplock bags also work great for yarn storage if you need a safe place to store your yarn collection while it’s not in use.
How do you take care of amigurumi?
Soak your amigurumi in a sink of water and wool-wash (like Eucalan ). Gently squeeze all of the water out, and let dry completely. Animals made from non-machine-washable yarns can be machine washed without felting completely. The stuffing keeps the yarn from felting as much as loose fabric would.
