You can block acrylic, but you need to add damp heat to the mix to make the block stay.

When I blocked my acrylic shawls, I pinned them damp to my mattress, then put the fitted sheet over top and ironed the crap out of them with a steam iron set to medium. I highly recommend using the spare/guest bedroom, 'cause it takes some acrylics a surprisingly long time to dry '>

This method is called "killing" the acrylic. Be carefl not to overstretch the scarf, because once it's killed, it won't spring back. At all. But the curl will be gone.

Good luck!
