I just hit the closest goodwill to me today and for $20 got 10 sweaters made of silk, cashmere, lambswool, and other assorted wonderful fibers! A *FAR* cry from red heart acrylic that I've been using up til now.
My question is this - after unravelling, what's the best way to store the finer yarns...? In balls that I wind as I unravel? In hanks? (there's a scary thought, I've never done that before) or in the nice neat little balls that are wound using my little spinny thingy that clamps onto my table and has a handle to crank it? All my heavier weight yarns get rewound from the skeins they come on into balls on that thing and I know how to use it. But I'm wondering what the heck to do with the really fine yarns I got - I have several very fine silks that I doubt would work well on that thing.
Help me please!
