Tip: How to straighten the wool?

When one wants to recover the wool of a failed work, a sweater decidedly too has-been or an abandoned attempt, the wool that one deticates always ends up in a mass of rough loops and threads which does not not inspire a prestigious reuse. It is far from the soft wool and vaporous departure.

To recover her wool, I always heard that she had to put it in skeins, wash it and dry it to solve the problem. For me and my laziness it’s a solution that has never been attractive. Too long, too complicated, too wet.

So I tested a simple and fast method: steam straightening.

Step 1 : to raise the wool a skein without stretching the wool too much. Seeking the help of a nice friend or failing that, the feet of an upturned chair will do the trick.

2nd step : pass the steam of an iron near the wool for a few minutes.

Step 3 : reform a new ball without tightening to allow the wool the ability to resume its volume.

The wool is smooth again, silky and airy.
