So I am gifting Do I Wanna Know to someone for Xmas, and though I better wash to ensure no medicinal smoke residue on garment. I am not a fan of the cold so washing in cold water was not fun for my hands, which were already frozen to begin with. Surprisingly, the soap came out of the garment and water fairly fast and easy. This cowl is so heavy when wet! I laid it flat outside on the wrought iron table so air could circulate through the garment for quicker drying. As thick as this wool is – I guess I am just so used to man-made fibers releasing water faster and more freely – this one is drying very slowly. I did not want to leave outside because I don’t want the garment to acquire more moisture from the cold evening, so I brought it inside and draped it. Hopefully, this will be dry tomorrow morning for wrapping.
