Experts believe the earliest documented records of crocheting were from the early 1800s, but it is highly likely that it began well before that and originated from either Iran, South America or China, or maybe a combination of all three. Crochet involves the process of using a hook to thread yard or many other types of threads or even grass in beautifully decorative patterns. The word itself originates from French from the word croche, which literally means hook.
How do you wash crochet clothing?
Crocheted items are of a special delicacy so if you want them to not be shredded to pieces, it is best to avoid putting them in the washing machine. But this can be difficult when it is hygienic to wash hosiery after every wash. So the best option is hand washing in cold water. If your washing machine has an option for this, it is easy to wash it with this method, but as many don't you can just add crocheted items into your hand wash sessions that should already be happening for bras and other undergarments. Opt for a detergent that contains lanolin, a natural oil produced by sheep that contains capabilities that help naturally preserve fibers and also increases water resistance in the material. Once you've got your washing materials ready, load a bath of cold water and gently dunk the crocheted item in the detergent-filled water. Don't scrub or wring out the item once finished. Drain the bath and re-fill again with cold water for rinsing and repeat the dunking process until the water is free of soap. Once you're finished, dry the crocheted hosiery by laying it flat and then rolling it up in a towel to get out excess water. Do not wring the towel, either and keep these garments out of direct sunlight while drying and during storage.
