This is two strand polyester type yarn, quite thin, not soft, more of a cord feel to it. I have three huge cones of it but I am short on ideas of what to do with it other than pass it on to sit in someone else's house
I have lots of wool that I use for crochet but having tried knitting this, crocheting it, well it can be done but the result feels like a crusty knitted dishcloth
Macramé sounds promising I remember making plants holders with shells/beads a looong time ago I could probably google up a how to..
It's a bit too thin for the lamp base @ nest for doormice/bowls as I ink my cats might confuse the two and think they were getting fancy new dinner service
It could do for the making of mat type things but yes it would need doubled or tripled up or anything will take ages.
Do you think it could be used in 'hanks' to weave smallish mats out of? Or would that be too loose to hold? Plaiting it in individual strands is too teeny I would needs a good handful to make any head way mmmmm <thinking>
Maybe some kind of cross over weave/macramé? Knot big hanks together for bulk and weave....
It's the sort of feel you would expect of something thicker iyswim like tough cord but only the thickness of single ply. It doesn't feel good knitted or crocheted so none of the stuff I usually do (with wool) is going to work.
I'm sort of sorry I took it now without thinking through properly what it could be used for! hoarder tendencies The gardening suggestion pinged up maybe being able to give a cone to the local allotments for twine type jobs
I will have a rough go with plaiting/knotting hanks in the morning and see what the results are, I might still have a macramé magazine likewise hoarded so definitely will try to combine those ideas.
