I have this skein of laceweight cashmere from Hipknits and I’ve stored in the plastic ziploc bag it was sent to me in. I only took it out occasionally to cuddle it.
Now I have a shawl I want to make, so I went to wind the cashmere and I find it is breaking while I try ot wind it. In fact, even holding two strands together, I can just pull a little and it breaks! :pout:
Did I do something wrong? Is all cashmere so delicate? Should I go ahead and knit with it from the hank directly? Wouldn’t the finished item also be fragile?
If I can’t knit with it, what can I do with it :shrug:
