      For rather invisible hem stitching, ravel out long threads from scrap or long
      edges of the garment and hand stitch with the same thread as the fabric was
      woven with. For decorative stitches, use a wool yarn of crewel or needlepoint
      weight, spliting plys as needed. For woolen yarns you will need to find a shop
      specializing in needlepoint supplies if you don't spin your own. If you spin
      your own, use a fleece with a long fine staple, not hairy.
