Today I set the twist in some yarns, which means I soaked most of them in very hot water until the fibers plumped up, and then drained the water out and set them to dry.

For overspun yarns, instead of soaking it in hot water, I steam it for 20 minutes, and then weight it to dry. That helps to reduce the amount of  kinkiness in the yarn.

Here’s my makeshift stretcher.
