Kids, Don't Try This At Home
Today, I'll show you a little trick that will either save you from doing something irrevocable to your wool garments or will allow you to identify unlabeled yarn in your stash as wool or a wool blend.
The basic truth upon which my trick is based is simple: Wool will dissolve if it comes in contact with chlorine bleach.
Wool Placed in Bleach:
One Minute Later: (notice how it's turning white)
Five Minutes Later: (notice how it has disappeared)
