  1. Yes! You must. It’s magic. Somehow I was never quite convinced that this was a better option than knots (cos, you know, I’d always used knots, what was wrong with a good solid knot anyways…). More fool me.
    I can’t remember exactly what yarn I failed with before, but I think it’s important to be sure you’re using feltable animal fibres, and it probably helps to have a good multi-ply yarn too.
