Can acrylic yarn be ironed?

Do not EVER touch the iron to the crocheting.

Like I said before, the yarn will melt if it touches the iron. However, you still have to hover the iron at least an inch above your project. As long as the iron never physically touches the yarn, you’ll be fine.

What happens if you iron acrylic?
