I am taking extreme cashmere measures as I knit a blanket from recycled cashmere yarn.
The good: All the cashmere sweaters are made up of similar sized strands of cashmere, and I had minimal breakage from unravelling. And 3 of the 4 sweaters have the same number of strands (4).
The bad: One of the sweaters is only 3 strands of cashmere, instead of 4. And cashmere is delicate. An evening of - carefully- unwinding one strand and combing the strands to get 4 strands...and I am finally back on track. I have another sweater I could unravel part of to make this blanket, but suspect it is only 3 strands. I don't think I could face that about now!
