I always wash my crocheted items before giving them away. I don't sell finished items but I would wash them first.

I've only sold a couple of things in the past but have given away several as gifts over the years. I ALWAYS wash & dry everything before it leaves my hands. This way I set the colors as well as make sure that it holds up the way I expect it to.

 

Oh, and welcome back! I've just recently returned myself from a 2 year hiatus.

No. I have severe allergies to scented soaps and imagine that others may too. If I were to wash the items before selling, I would think it's important to tell that on the site in case people have allergies. I personally don't like my stuff scented that I buy.

I wash everything before giving it out - i am in a household with cats, a dog and a bird.  If i know its going to a baby - then i will use a baby laundry soap, but otherwise i just wash as normal, though i use an unscented laundry soap myself as i don't like a lot of the scents.   I would assume that folks with strong allergies or dislikes of soaps would take the item and give it a wash in their own preferred method first thing.

Blankets & things other than my character hats I sell or giveaway, I do wash. I make my own laundry soap - and use scentsy washer whiffs & dryer discs with my laundry so things that I wash that I have crocheted, I just don't add those scentsy things with the laundry! I have dogs and the hubby occasionally smokes in the bedroom, so I don't want people to receive stuff that has dog hair or smells like smoke (though I do keep my yarn in zippered plastic vacuum sealed bags) it's still a possibility.
