I have a loom, which I have not used yet and have no weaving knowledge or experince. I want to weave rugs using rug yarn I have made at a mini mill with my alpaca fiber and not sure what is best for the warp??? For some of the rugs I may want to dye the warp yarn, so that is a consideration.
Also, I can have the rug yarn made with a sisal, cotton, or wool core. One mill said that weavers like cotton core. Any thoughts on that??
I have several pounds of raw mohair that someone gave to me that is full of vegetable matter. I don't have a tumbler or a picker - any suggestions on cleaning it up to make it usable??? I can't bring myself to throw it away!!!
