Allergies from knit next to wool?
There are a couple of factor involved. You could be allergic to the wool. You could be allergic to the dye that they use. You could be allergic to the mothproofing/finishing agent that they use.
For example, I am not allergic to wool, but I have an allergic spontaneous effect to Brown Sheep yarns (before they are washed).
Try something low within dyes/chemicals to try and determine the source. Good luck!
you can try taking Benedryl about an hour past knitting, wearing gloves, or switching to a different type of line. wool allergies are quite adjectives.
Yes, it is possible to be allergic to wool. I found out about my wool allergy after have a patch test done by a dermatologist. Maybe try knit with a different yard goods and see if it still happens.
