I bought a lot of Aplaca yarn from Smiley's when they had a sale a month ago. I'm going to be a grandma for the first time later this year & have started making baby blankets & baby clothes are next; is it o.k. to knit w/Alpaca for the baby? If so, is hand washing or delicate cycle machine washing ok & do u just lay it flat for drying or can u put in on delicate for a short time in the dryer? Thanks so much for your help.
