It’s a chilly March in the Bay Area, California this year. Our heating system isn’t the best, so I dress warm at home. This sweater is one I made from organic cotton “Sherpa” knit fabric from Stone Mountain and Daughter Fabrics in Berkeley. It is the ultimate comfort blanket/garment. The pattern was self drafted, a loose block style with a funnel neck that folds into itself or pulls up over the face.
I washed and dried the fabric and that resulted in a towel like surface which I wasn’t found of; but after spraying it with cold water and brushing it out, (thanks Dorothy for the advice) the furry, silky quality returned. So, I recommend no dryer, and expect to brush it like a pet while wet to loosen the pile.
