4 thoughts on “Steam Blocking Acrylic Yarn

  1. Hello, Your tutorial answered all my questions and even some I didn’t know enough to ask! I am spending the day today blocking several finished acrylic projects with my new steamer! I am very excited to see the benefits you show here happen to the ponchos I finished last week. Most often I crochet with pima cotton and highland wool so if you have any blocking tips for natural material I look forward to hearing them too!


    1. Your blocking for certain fabrics will come undone. So a natural fiber in a lace pattern will be a blob after washing. You will have to re-block to get the pretty lace to show well again. An acrylic granny square blanket will need little to no reblocking after washing. Also the “killed” acrylic is still soft, just very flat and shiny.
