Unsnarled


Small washers on string loops attached to each bobbin introduce enough tension to slow down the singles as they unreel, and make plying more orderly.

I can't remember what book I saw this in. It was given as a way to slow down a bobbin on a spinning machine.

The other thing that helped unsnarl the yarn was raising the lazy kate from the floor to a ledge at shoulder height, the same height roving is when I spin. This allowed each single to unreel at an angle as far from the others as possible.
