A long time ago I read about making some things for the military and the items need to be made with 100% wool so I bought this skien
of Fisherman's wool (the dog chewed the paper) to make a helmet liner but didn't start it until recently and to my dismay the yarn is flawed big time.....Every so often it is frayed like this

at first I thought it was just a one time thing but as I progressed it happened more often. I tried to knot it and contiue but I felt the project was just bad so ripped it out and will get rid of this yarn!!! Wished I would have discovered it sooner and I would have returned it but it has been too long. Has anyone else every experienced this?

No, I haven't had that happen with Fisherman's Wool.

That is so frustrating!

It has been a while but I am pretty sure I've had some yarn that has done that exact thing.

I've used Fishermen's Wool often and have never come across this problem. You might be able to get a replacement skein from the manufacturer.
