I was up early this morning so decided to browse about on Ravelry, looking at all the forums I haven’t had time for recently.
Of course they included the dyeing and weaving forums.
Result being I have now warped up the loom with classic collections reflections. There is my bad idea.
This yarn is lovely, 75% acrylic, 10% wool, 10% mohair and 5% metallic. It had a beautiful irredescent metallic thread running all the way through it.
It is also an absolute bugger to weave with.
All the threads are sticking to each other, I think it is the mohair. Only the fact that this is going to make an absolutely gorgeous scarf is stopping me from cutting it off the loom.
