recycled yarn

I was wondering about unraveling natural fiber sweaters that I find at Good Will, Salvation Army and the like. How would you go about the unravaling (where would you find a place to start)?

Qiviut Question

Hello, Men!

Have any of you used Qiviut yarn? This is the soft undercoat of the Arctic Musk ox. I'm knittig it up now, and I'm not happy with it.
