Thank you for posting the link to this helpful Web site, Tamar. I've often wondered how to determine what kind of yarn is what in a thrift store. Do you think the managers will mind if I take a lighter around and burn parts of their sweaters to figure out their yarn make-up? :wink:

Still, good to know. I think I ended up swatching and washing the last unknown yarn I had. I don't think my test was very successful, though.

I had some unknown yarn at home and I tried to felt little bits of it unsuccessfully. Then I went to the Internet and used this method.

I work a lot from stash that I find or that get given to me and there is always an old jumper that someone will give me to recycle.
