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
