Blocking Cloud 9

I've never blocked a cotton/rayon blend. Is the process the same as a wool shawl? I'm using Cloud 9 in the Bird of Paradise colorway and am getting ready to bind off.

Thanks,
Jenny

Jenny,

I washed and rinsed mine until the color catchers remained the same color as when I started the load, and then placed it on the floor without pins or string. The ripples were nudged into place and the shawl was left to dry.

Jenny, I washed my Bird of Paradise Cloud 9 shawl in Synthrapol until the color ran clear and used blocking wires and insulation foam to block it. Like Mary, I let it dry while blocked and removed the wires and T-pins.
