While I was working on the Recycled Wool Nightcap I swore to myself that I would add twist to and relax the recycled yarn before I used it again.
I'm not sure if you can see in this photo that it's really acting like 3 strands of yarn rather than a 3-ply yarn. But you can definitely see that the kink from it previously being a sweater is still very much present.
As you can see, I still had a lot of tiny balls left over from the Recycled Wool Project. So I separated the yarn into bigger balls and smaller balls, tied them together as I was plying and then gave it a good long soak.
I now have 1268 yards over 3 skeins and 7 5/8 ounces of recycled lamb's wool in a lovely 3-ply yarn, all ready for my next project.
I will make a mental note to take more care when separating the panels of the next sweater I recycle. Fortunately the plan I have for the yarn means the knots should not be issue... let's hope that's true.
In the meantime, I hope you are having a lovely Fiber Arts Friday. Be certain to see what everyone else has been up to over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.
