HOW TO SET THE TWIST IN HANDSPUN YARN

SUPPLIES NEEDED

  • Bowl of Warm Water
  • UNICORN Fibre Rinse or Beyond Soft
  • Handspun Yarn, Skeined

INSTRUCTIONS

  • After your yarn is spun, wind it off the bobbin using a niddy-noddy.
  • Tie the yarn in 4 sections around the skein so it does not get tangled during the setting process.
  • Fill up a bowl with warm water and add 2 drops of Fibre Rinse (scented) or Beyond Soft (unscented) to the water.
  • Swish the rinse in the water.
  • Place the yarn gently in the water and let it soak for 5 minutes.
  • Gently remove the yarn from the water and hang in the shower or outside to dry.
  • To speed up drying time, use a salad spinner or spin-dryer to remove excess water from the yarn before drying.
