I was given some handspun wool to knit for charity with, it is spun
wonderfully at a worsted weight, but it is the roughest wool I have
ever encountered. My first inclination would be to make anything that
would not come into contact with a human body. If it must come into
contact with a person, it will need to be lined.
I tried felting it to no avail and even after washing it did not soften
up at all.
So does anyone know of a charity I could knit for (this stipulation of
the spinner was that the wool be used for charity) with very rough wool
and what on earth could I knit? I have 700 yards of the stuff....
I am thinking lined hats, but really will take any ideas at this point
Oh and I consider myself and advanced beginner/medium skill level
Thanks for any help!
