I bought some fun fur but I am unsure if you are supposed to pull out of the end like some skeins, or what.  I don't want to mess up the yarn so I thought it best to ask.

I love using the furry yarns, but they can be really irritating to work with. Some of them are incredibly sticky and hard to pull out of the skein. If I find things tangling or sticking, I stop and wind the rest of the skein into a simple yarn ball. That way, loops of yarn don't have to slide past each other when you pull for more. The yarn simply rolls off the outside layer.

Also, it's sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to find the starting yarn end in the center of the skein. If I can't dig it out easily, I just start working with the end on the outside of the skein.

I'm the same as the person above.  If you can find the center part easily, do that, but otherwise just start at the outside.  And if you start from the center, it will sometimes get all tangled up and you just have to stop and roll it into a regular ball.

I like to find the outside end and rewind the whole thing into a new centre-pull ball because then you know exactly where the end is.
