An Old Navy knockoff of that Pringle of Scotland sweater, for $25...

Trouble is, not only does it add serious bulk because it's a v-neck, it SMELLS. Not really oily or wooly but some kind of machine-y smell. Cascade 220 used to smell like it. Whatever the smell, I am allergic. But for $25, it just seems like I ought to at least keep the yarn - there's probably over 2000 yards in it. Except that it smells. How can I get the smell out? Anybody know? Maybe I can wash the yarn and use it to knit the Lion Brand knockoff??? Because this one doesn't really look like the others, though it's definitely inspired by it.

Dreary and rainy hear. I'm drinking Cold Season tea (Thank you, Yogi Tea!) and it SERIOUSLY helps.

Maybe rinse it in some Soak or wool wash?

Have you tried a product called Oder Ban? You can just add it to the wash water and it just might take the smell out. I think Wally World sells it.

It's cute, but if you don't love it? RETURN IT.

Life is too short for sweaters you don't want to wear.
