And you're always so good with the information. How cool is it that I can ask the internet the question, and I get a real answers from people who know what they're talking about? Amazing.
I'm going to be tail spinning some mohair locks to weave with. This is new territory for me. I'm thinking I might use it for a rug. I'm also thinking I might use a Finn/BFL blended core so it will felt a bit and really hold those locks. (It is going to get walked on after all) Or is that nutso?
Anyway, my REAL question is, how does something like this hold up? Has anyone made anything like this? Do the little locks fuzz into puffs after a month or so of foot traffic, or do they tend to keep their shape?
How do you set the twist with tail spun yarn? (Soak/slap/ect) Does that affect the locks? Is a tailspun/corespun yarn ever really balanced? I mean, it's basically a single, OR IS IT because the core is the opposite twist of the finished yarn? These are mysteries.
I know these are a lot of questions, and I know they're unorganized. Any insight would be helpful.
In other news, we made pine cone peanut butter bird feeders today. It was hilarious.
