Continuing my experimentation with different types of thread and yarns I dragged this lot out of my stash. my plan was to see if it worked in a braid with a wavy selvedge.
The answer to that is a big fat no! Not wanting to waste the yarn I switched the bobbins around and started a one one twill braid.
That worked but the yarn was still too hard to work with, especially when you consider the simple finished look.
