This is one of my favorite tips for spinning and it is also the absolute easiest trick you’ll ever try. When I finish spinning a single, I let it take a rest, either on my spindle or my bobbin for at least 24 hours before I do anything with it. Why, you might ask? Well, I feel that it helps the twist to relax into the spun fiber … it calms it down a little so that when I decide to ply it or if I want to leave it as a single and wind it off, it doesn’t get tangled.
Some people don’t bother with resting their yarns and others, like me, swear by it. Why not experiment with your next handspun? Test it out and see if it makes a difference for you!
Happy crafting all!
