I am now on my third skein of Lionbrand Fishermen's Wool, Oak Tweed yarn. The first skein had three breaks in the yarn that were deep inside the skein. Two of them were tied with really big and sloppy knots. The third was simply a break, no effort was made to tie it. The second skein was a bit better, only two knots. I am about 3/4 of the way on the front of the vest and the third skein also has a knot that is tied in a large loop, so I will need to splice it.
Am I just naive in thinking that this should not happen in yarns, or is this something that happens regularly? I know I am a novice to the art form, but I have never run into this before this project and to have six breaks in thee skeins seems to be a bit excessive.
Thanks for helping me understand.
