This is the sort of thing I would be drooling over if I saw it in a shop - I love it about a million times more knowing it's hand-made.  It's very impressive.  If I had made that, I would wear it everywhere.  Smiley

Do you have any tips or tricks on how you split the yarn?  It never occurred to me try it until reading your post, but so far I'm just ending up with a tangled mess. 


1. unravel about 2 or 3 meter yarn, then tied the ball using rubber band
2. when you split the yarn, make sure you pull the yarn tightly (ask for help or use your feet to hold)
3. hang the ball and let it spin before you unravel for more.

I can split 1 ball or 50 gram yarn in about 1 hour.

Thanks so much for the tips!  I think the rubber band is the key.  It was impossible to untwist the separate strands without the entire ball rolling away and turning into a jumble of yarn.  Now i have to go try again . . .

I didn't get a chance to work on it yet (too busy shoveling snow out of part of my yard so my little dog can do his business without having snow up to his eyeballs) but I can sort of visualize how you must have done it.  You're sweet for being concerned Kiss I feel confident I can figure it out now, whenever I actually get around to it. . .
