I’ve finally finished my third bobbin of Rook-y (that’s the color way)! This is eight ounces of singles of BFL/Tussah silk fiber. I’ve got to let the twist in this last bobbing set so that it’s easier to ply them. When a singles is freshly spun, the twist is active. This means if it pull some of it off the bobbin, it will twist back on itself quickly. If I let the singles sit for a bit, the twist becomes less active and when I pull it off the bobbin, it will either not do much of anything, or it will twist back on itself much more slowly. If I had spun all three bobbins quickly, the twist would be similar and I wouldn’t have to let them set a bit. Since I took my time spinning these bobbins, the first two bobbins have inactive twist, while the last bobbin is still active. If I try to ply them right now, it won’t be easy because of the one active twist bobbin. I’ll let the twist set for a week or so before I start plying and then it will all be much easier.
