I need an advice ! I was spinning tonight, very happy but careless ! So I spun fast all my batch of fiber on the same bobin, stupi me ! As I am a beginner, my yarn needs plying. I don't want to try a navajo plying because I don't a too thick yarn. My idea is (would be) to put half of the single on a second bobin. Is it possible or will my single be ruined ? I assume I don't thread the yarn in the loop of the flyer. What do you think ? Thanks !

do you have a ball winder? Wind it into a center pull ball and then use both ends to ply

You can also use the Andean Plying technique, if you want to ply it with your spindle.

Here's a link:

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.
