You would think I would know but can you block an item made with acrylic yarn?

I get sh*t done!

using steam within a five foot radius of acrylic yarn will turn it in to a big, spaghetii-eqsue, unrecognizable-as-anything-once-knitted mess

but you can spray it with water & pin it a bunch. chances are it wont do a whole lot (depending on the yarn), but in my experience it wont hurt it

I've heard that wet blocking with hot water helps some with acrylic yarn - i.e. get it wet with hot tap water, then pin in place and let it dry.  But I've never tryied it myself.
