How to twist a yarn skein example

Twisting a Skein

Hi guys! I read every single survey response and email that you guys send and in the past couple of weeks since we opened the doors, we’ve actually received a number of requests to learn how to twist a skein of yarn. So I took 5 minutes before recording the Taking Back Friday vlog this week to also do a little demonstration on how to twist a skein of yarn.

In this tiny tutorial, I demonstrate how I twist a skein of yarn from a loose hank into a twisted skein format using both a standard 4 oz (115 g) skein of Tough Love Sock and a skinny skein of handspun yarn.

Let me know what you think about the tutorial here in the forums »
