Tying skeins

‘Figure of 8’ ties around skeins, three or four of them per skein, help to keep the integrity of the skein during the dyeing process. Don’t be mean with the amount of yarn you use – the fibres need room to move. If the ties are too tight, you will find the dye isn’t taken up well by the fibre under the tie.
