Good afternoon.  After almost 10 years a cashmere sweater gave out in the elbows.  I watched videos on how to reclaim yarn, but i made a mess of it.  I am managing to free 2-3" lengths of lace weight yarn.

What I am wondering, is how to separate the fibers so I can respin them.  Would hand carders work?  

Any suggestions are most welcome.  I could make a novelty yarn with the bits and pieces but id like to upcycle it and perhaps belnd it with merino to make an even yarn for another sweater

Cheers,
Mike
