Check out the ingeo! Of course once my son George saw this fantastic blue, he HAD to have a hat out of it, so I cast on last night and finished the ribbing so far. But when I set the twist, it didn't set! What in the world is going on???? This stuff is just as twisted as it was when I took it off of the wheel. So I can't wait until I finish this hat, because it is going to be the most twisted sister lookin thing you have ever seen! I don't know about spinning this stuff in singles, but it's just so pretty as a single as opposed to plyed! Maybe it's just me, but I have never had a problem with setting the twist in anything at all. And, the dye wanted to bleed out, (which I figured that it would when I wet it), so I automatically put the vinegar in. Oh, well, live and learn.... later..:) Posted by Picasa

You may want to try setting the twist by boiling the skein. Cotton needs tremendous heat to set the twist, and ingeo may be the same.

Just a thought...
