red cotton yarn and bleeding...

Apparently she needs it to be cotton because wool and acrylic make her break out (TMI - sorry)
Anyway. How do you avoid the red and white bleeding?
Wash the red first?

I would make a very, very basic quick, swatch in the red, enough to use as much as you would use in the hat. Then I would wash it enough to make sure it wouldn't bleed anymore. Then, I would pull out the fastening knot, and directly crochet from the swatch to the new hat. Then I would know that the red had been washed and was no longer going to bleed.
That being said though, I've used lots of colored cottons (think Sugar N Cream) with whites and haven't had any problems in the wash thus far.
