I’m often asked, “What is the proper way to tie a skein?” It is a good question—because a properly tied skein helps avoid tangles and frustration when you process the yarn to set the twist.
After you have spun and plied your singles, you need to take your yarn off the bobbin or spindle and make it into a skein. A niddy-noddy simplifies
skein-making. Niddy-noddies are designed to produce different sizes of skeins—the most common size makes a 2-yard skein.
