CAUTION: Baby yeti is an extremely fuzzy yarn and shows best after wet blocking. Use a rinse-less wool wash, such as Eucalan, and follow up with a low heat dryer for just a few minutes to reduce fuzz. Allow garment to lay flat and air dry completely. Finished fabric will take on its own unique texture which will slightly alter the overall gauge.
