Tips from the Vault: Ironing Wool

CLEANING
LAUNDRY, IRONING, GENERAL CLEANING


Ironing Wool: Lacy jumpers or other delicate hand-knitted woollens will press better if ironed under a sheet of brown paper instead of under a damp cloth. Always iron wool on wool. The naps cling together, and when they are pulled apart the nap is raised. This obviates the "shine" trouble.

So now you tell me I gotta find:
1) A wool ironing board cover, and
2) Some brown paper? oh yeah and
3) Someone to knit me a delicate lacy jumper!

I would never have even thought of ironing wool, so there you go...

So, now we need a knitted ironing board cover pattern?
