Kay so! I have this awesome 100% cashmere sweater of my dad's. It has like two or three moth holes in it, but it's mostly fine, so I took off the sleeve and have unraveled from the shoulder to the armpit, nd it's filled up a whole bobbin with gorgeous laceweight cashmere. Problem is, the yarn tends to break pretty easily. I was thinking of running it through my wheel once to add a little bit more plying twist to it, but I dunno if I should do that or just ply it with itself or what. I'm so excited, though. THis stuff is gorgeous! ANy suggestions? I shall post pics!

This was over a month ago. What did you end up doing with it? I would probably ply it with itself, or with even just some sewing thread to add some strength.
