Hi, I would like to make pair of felted gloves and socks comparable to dachstein.
They will be used outdoors in snow and ice for mountaineering. I want a tight windproof felt as they will be used in temp as low as *0F. What’s the most durable yarn available?
I was looking at cascade 220, wool of Andes, fisherman. Can someone compare them?
What are other variables involved in making a durable fabric?
I have been told that*
1)thicker/stronger you want it, the farther you want to felt it.
2)knit with 2 strands at a time.
3)use size 11 needle.
Any other tips?
I am completely new to knitting. This will be my first knitting project.
