Oh wise and wonderful people who visit my blog
As far as store bought sweaters go, this is my absolute most favorite sweater ever.
It's made by Eddie Bauer out of 60% Cotton, 30% Nylon and 10% Angora Rabbit with darling tiny shell buttons. Not only does it have snowflake designs printed on it, it also has some larger snowflakes embroidered on in an 41% Acrylic, 31% Nylon, 28% Mohair thread. Why go to so much trouble to tell you the fibre content? Well, simple, I need your help.
You see, I was hand washing some of my more fragile clothing (hand knits mostly), being careful as always to go from light to dark and not to over agitate the more delicate items. I'm very careful with my clothes as I absolutely despise clothe shopping. I can't stand it, so I do everything in my power to make what I own last as long as humanly possible.
When I hung everything to dry, I must of accidentally put this gorgeous sweater up against some red socks. The red dye somehow leaked into the sweater and now I have red patches on the sweater that I cannot get out.
So please, tell me oh wise and wonderful people who visit my blog, how can I get the stain out and return this sweater to it's former glory?
