I am weaving a Dropdrall towel in 16/2 Cottolin. I’ve never used it before, so I’m not sure if the problems I’m having are usual for this yarn.
The yarn has multiple areas that are kinked in a way that a part of it twists onto itself and protrudes out about a 1/4”. These have led to weak areas in the warp, and I’ve had several warp threads break. Is this usual for Cottolin, or did I just get a bad spool?
Other than that, I absolutely love working with this fiber combination, especially in the finer weight!
Thank you for your input!
