Vintage yarn

Crochet Buffet

Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right place to post this:


I just picked up 10 skeins of old Kmart & TGY yarn from the goodwill ($2.99 for all 10 :clap)

Anyway, they have a funny smell. Not stinky, but... well, I would like to get the smell out.


Do I just crochet something & then wash, or is there something I can do to clean them before using it?

Also, if it's just slightly "off" open a box or two of baking soda and put it in a container with the yarn. A paper bag, box, plasic container, etc. will all do nicely.

I've done that and it works pretty well.
