Yarn Allergy - Help!!!!
Posted 24 February 2012 - 12:44 PM
I crocheted with RHSS yarn that was 100% acrylic a few weeks ago with no problems. So I'm wondering if it could be the dye? I've also read about starches manufacturers use on yarn...could it be that? Would washing the yarn skein first help before I just give it all away?
Anyone have experience with an Allergic reaction to a brand of yarn for no apparent reason? I know some people are allergic to wool but this is not wool.
Thanks for any help or advice!

It is possible to be allergic to acrylic, or like you said to something that was used in processing the yarn. Maybe you should put the yarn aside until you are finished with the antibiotic, or any other new medications, so you can better determine what you might be reacting to.
I'm Kathy-crochet on Ravelry.
It's official--I cannot type the word "stitch", it always comes out "sttich".

I would wait and try it again after the anti-biotics are out of your system.

While I was crocheting I realized that depending on how I am sitting, I tend to rub my forearms on my 'chest area' while crocheting too. I had to consciously make an effort not to do this. I crocheted for about 1 1/2 hours without breaking out!! So I'm not 100% convinced this is the cause but I will keep paying attention to my arm position while I'm crocheting!

I finally contacted the company and they refunded my money , or they said I could choice another yarn to replace it. I took the yarn , I now forgot which ; but it was so soft.
contact them and tell them about it.

I had the problem with RH Super Saver. All the other Red Heart yarns never bothered me, just that type. I believe It was fixed by Red Heart, because I tried it once more about a year ago and all was OK. So let Caron know if it happens again. They get enough notices and they will investigate and attempt to fix the problem.

it may not be the yarn it could be a few other things...Like where you get your yarn from...yarn gets tossed around on the floor/etc it could be a cleaner they cleaned the floor w/ or maybe something on the shelf....Just another idea....to consider..but it could be the brand of yarn too

I once read that the problem could be the dye, not the fiber. I bought myself a very nice, very expensive alpaca, only to be sneezing and eyes watering. I made a very nice cowl but gave it to my sister. I later read that alpaca is the least allergenic wool, but it was probably the dye. (it was from knitpicks)
