I just finished a lace scarf with yarn made up of 30% silk and 70% bamboo. Have any of you tried to block yarn like this? Will wet blocking work safely? The yarn is so pretty and I don't want to ruin it. Thanks for your help.

Presumably, the scarf will be washed at some point in its lifetime. So, wet blocking shouldn't bother it any, and will make the lacy pattern show better.

Your yarn label should have care instructions on it. I find that if you follow those or just sit the entire scarf in a sink with cool water and a little Euculan it will block fine. Be careful when using blocking pins as bamboo holds more moisture than wool so you want to make sure your pins are rust proof. I use blocking wires rather than pinning the entire thing.
