Tips for Stitching with Angora

Recently someone in Needlepoint Nation asked for tips when you are stitching with Angora.  Folks recommended using a large needle eye and shorter lengths—and to put the thread in the freezer before using to reduce shedding while you work with it and to keep the thread tight.

The freezer trick came from Kelly (who knits) and Juliet (who crochets).  Thanks!

By the way, Angora comes from Rainbow Gallery.  It is a little heavy for 18 count in my opinion but using a size 18 needle really helps there.
