nineteenth skein



2 oz brown wool (Coopworth?)
112 yards
singles spun at 32 wpi
two ply 14 wpi

I set the twist and now the skein hangs open without corkscrewing.

On Becky's advice, I removed the crochet cotton that I'd garrotted the skein with originally and replaced it with self ties (ties made of the skein's own yarn) in figure eight loops rather than single tight loops.
