The Striped Loop

I've gotten a decent amount knitted on my Striped Mohair Loop.  I haven't measured, but I think I'm at about the halfway point.  I will have to measure on this one, because unlike the Shibui Silk Cloud that has exactly the yardage needed for a cowl, the Rowan Kidsilk Haze Stripe, has more, so I can't just knit until I run out of yarn.  It's not a problem to have more yardage; I'm not complaining.  I just need to keep a measuring tape with this project.

My colorway is pretty subtle in the stripes department, but it will be interesting to see how the stripes work up in this cowl.  I am trying to get this finished up soon.  The spring semester of Loopy Academy should start next week!

My question is to do with the yarn. I just bought some Ito Sensai to make this cowl you keep making and it comes in a sort of bundle. I wonder if I should use it as is or wind it, and I wonder if this thread-like fuzzy stuff could even be wound. You have used a couple of yarns that are similar; do you wind them? And if yes, with a winder or by hand? I am not exactly looking forward to working with this stuff but I have a person who needs this cowl so...Any advice gratefully accepted.
