It looked like an apple coddling moth and it could have come inside in one of the ones I picked from the tree. But you never know.

200F for 40 minutes or so, carefully only touching the pan. I don’t remember what temp damages super wash treatment for wools, though I know boiling does, but that’s not an issue with these yarns.

Opening the folds up, the center registered 147F a minute or two after I took it out. I let it cool, then carefully zip locked it away for now.

Doesn’t everybody bake their afghans?

Glad you caught it – just in case.

Yikes, better safe than sorry! Don’t want to risk that great blanket.

I have more than once been incorrectly called Afghan for Afton. However, it streams me more than bakes.

Yikes! Good to be safe, but, no, I’ve never baked my knits. I remember Stephanie nearly burning hers.
