when I first started weaving I was told not to use mohair in my warp. I didn't really understand why until a few years later I was weaving a queen size blanket for a friend using her yarn stash as warp. It included several beautiful colors of fuzzy mohair yarns. About a foot into the project my shed would no longer open, the mohair threads were wrapping around adjacent threads and raising havoc with my project. I went online and searched for solutions to my dilemma. Nothing worked. Then I tried some mane detangler I use on my horses manes called COWBOY MAGIC. It will get anything out of a horses mane. Well let me tell you it was a miracle. I rubbed some on my hands and then ran my fingers thru the warp threads in front of the reed and behind the heddles. I stepped on my treadles and the harness raised with no problem. It is a silicone based product that easily washes out when fulling. I thought I was going to have to cut the blanket off the loom and reimburse her for the yarn I had ruined, but thanks to the COWBOY MAGIC my problem was solved. I have since used this on wool projects when I encounter sticky threads.
Maybe this will help you someday!
I have been weaving about 12 years, mostly with my handspun yarns. I have about 12 looms with a project on about 6 at any one time. Mostly self taught but I don't do a lot of complex weaving. I let the beauty of the handspun yarns enhance a basic weave. I sell at art fairs and wool festivals. Buy and sell used looms.
Really enjoying Weavolution.
