I am new to this forum but I have been knitting for several years. I recently was give some 100% wool hand painted yarn in some really beautiful colors. The problem is it is pretty rough. What should I do with this yarn? It is pretty but I would hate to put a lot of time into something and then not be able to use it. I am not really familliar with wool, will it soften when it is washed? Any and all thoughts appreciated.
Unless it is superwash wool it will felt..in that case I would make something felted, like a purse or a cute pair of slippers How much yardage do you have? Feltable wool is kind of rough usually so I think that is what you have
