No Metallic Thread Against Skin

I have this lovely mohair yarn with a metallic thread in it, and I paired it with a chenille yarn and blithely made a simple scarf with it. I have no idea why it didn’t occur to me until I was two-thirds of the way done with it, that metallic thread against the skin would be akin to a torture device, and neither I nor anyone I know would ever wear such a thing for more than 2 minutes, and never again after that. (The scarf got pulled out.)

The Lesson: Never use metallic threaded yarn for anything meant to be worn against the skin.
