There does seem to be a lack of blocking information on this type of yarn available.

I did find this:

You might contact the original poster to find out how her blocking went.

Other than that, I am coming up empty. I tried multiple search terms, but I mostly found yarns for sale.

Thanks for all your help I also found a lack of info on this yarn. I bought it on a cruise as a memento to wear on future cruises so don't want to ruin it. I will do as suggested. Thanks again everyone I appreciate the quick responses. Lynn

I suspect this is rayon made from sugar cane, the same way that bamboo yarn is rayon made from bamboo.

Here's an earlier thread that also makes it sound like rayon:

Practice on your swatch first as if it were rayon, to make sure!
