My boyfriend managed to felt Knitty's Thuja socks I knit for him in Swish Superwash-my first completed socks. They survived the first trip through the washer and dryer with some slight pilling and a little shrinkage and I saw the carnage this weekend when I was looking for a clean towel. They were only three months old .
I think he left in the dryer for 3 hours because his dryer is old and doesn't dry things quickly so he runs several cycles.
Will any yarn survive a 3 hour trip through the dryer or should I give up on knitting socks for him? I have two socks on the needles for him--one in Louet Gems and Cider Moon Glacier. I don't think I can ever train him to set them aside to dry.
