Plying Hint

Because the yarn at the beginning and the end of my skeins were never quite as nice as the rest of the yarn, I used to discard the first and last few yards of yarn of each skein. Because I don’t like waste, a few years ago I started to spin a few yards of leftover bits of fibre at both the beginning and the end of my singles. Now when I ply, it is the leftover bits that are discarded.

Secondary bobbins ready for plying. The white singles will be discarded.
