Tips for the Cotton Fine yarn

  •  Winding:

    All DanDoh yarn is tri-fold after it has been bi-folded (most yarn you see at yarn shops is bi-folded). Once you open up tri-fold, it is a bi-folded hank. Unfold one more time, and it will be a hank the same size as another company's yarn.

    The hank has two ties to hold a hank (protect it from getting tangled), and keep ties until you set up a hank to a swift. This will prevent the threads from getting tangled. After the hank is on your swift, always check carefully at the two points where the hank is tied to make sure all the strands are coming out of those points the right way. If so much as one strand does a U-turn and goes the other way, you’ll end up with a hot mess on your hands. Cut ties, and wind ball tight. (Put tension on the yarn as you wind. the ball may fly from the ball winder if there is not enough tension.) This is a good tip for all plant fiber.

  • Stuff tissue in the center hole and use the outside end of the ball for knitting.

  • Needles:

    If you feel the yarn is slippery to handle, try using wooden or bamboo needles.

  •  Join new balls:

    Using the magic knot method.

  • Blocking:

    We recommend filling a bowl/bucket with water, submerging your swatch or garment and lightly squeezing it until there are no bubbles. Do not soak. Remove swatch/garment from water and squeeze as much water out of it as you can. Roll in a towel and step on it to remove as much water as possible. Stretch it, lay flat, pin sides and let dry completely.
