Today I have taken some of this unusually thick yarn (thick wool core-spun round a flax or hemp rope core) and want try and make something with it. I am thinking basket, mat, bag... no, too thick for a bag. I think basket will be best, maybe something
to store some yarn or spinning fiber in. This is the yarn:
Now yarn this size needs a big crochet hook, crochet seems
to be the best option here, I have that, and I mean BIG, 35 mm even, see here:
So far so good, I have made the bottom of a large basket and the first skein of yarn is used up, now up the sides and I hope to finish most of the yarn I have, I will have a whole empty shelf in my studio by then LOL, I have a total of 4 kilos of the yarn at about 60 meters per kilo.
