Butterscotch joins Damn! That’s Orange to make a total of TWO yarns in my Winter 2020 Yarn Fleet.
The prep goes so much faster when working with fairly choice mohair and not dregs left over after consignment – that’s another great benefit of me holding onto all my fair leftovers. So many nice locks to grab, as opposed to picking up piece after piece trying mostly in vain to find something not matted or full of scurf.
I learned the word “scurf” from one of my many Pretty But Useless fiber periodicals this week. Now I have a name for the waxy globs that some goats get at the base of their hair when they’ve been struggling with lice. It’s a bane.
