What is vintage yarn to one knitter may be unused “stash” to another. Oh, how we love our fibres and how quickly the time passes when working with yarn……………….
I find that cotton seems to dry out and acrylics turn brittle. Wool seems to have more longevity as long as the moths don’t find it.
Here is a vintage cotton yarn (Italian) that I crocheted into a scarf. The yarn was fun to work with, but definitely is a handknit/crochet yarn.
