Isn't that the truth!!! Because of the cost of the Dream I wouldn't have used it for the body anyway, but still. Can you even imagine? I'm getting ready to sort through my stash now to see what else I have I can use. I'm almost afraid to use anything else other than regular acrylic worsted weight yarn now. :(

Not sure if this will help but just last night I was reading an article in my Knit Simple magazine and it suggested putting your item in the freezer for a time to assist with unraveling fuzzy yarn. It said the fibers when stiff are not able to tangle as much.

If I had read this two nights earlier I could have saved a cashmere scarf I was working on, I pulled to hard trying to unravel and broke the yarn....causing myself a bigger mess.

I'm so sorry this happen on such a special project; I know how upset you must be.

Thanks Vicky! I will keep this in in mind when I start unraveling it.
