But then I dunked the entire sweater in warm water and to my horror the water started turning brown. No, not dirt brown but the color of the yarn. I was heart broken. There was nothing I could do. If I didn't let whatever was in there rinse out it would eventually stain my shirt. But I was loosing the lovely nutty brown I had loved so much.
I talked to Green Mountain Spinnery about it. They said it wasn't dyed, that was the natural color of the yarn. I was flummoxed. What had happened?
So.... if you intend to buy Cotton Comfort in the future, beware. You will love working with it, but you might have a washed out sweater in the end.
Ugh... the trials of a knitter. Guess what, I should have washed a big swatch before I made my sweater. Please, learn from my mistake.
