Wool winding

Wind up the thread now
Wind up the wool
Twist it turn it
Til it’s full
‘lily’s composition this morning’

New skeins of yarn from The Woolly Jumper in Tasmania
Hand spun and dyed alpaca. Lovely.
I put the skein over my feet and keep it tangle free as it goes over to Cedar or Lily who spin my new Royal wool winder and sing.

And very soon we have lovely centre pull balls of yarn ready for a project…

I am very pleased with my op shop find for $10 and now will look out for an umbrella swift to make the job a single handed option.
I first used a wool winder last year while I visited my family in WA. and am again delighted at how easy this tool makes wool winding! Hooray!!
unfortunately now I will need lots and lots of skeins of wool to make good use of it…

What tool have you which makes your work easier, speedier or more fun?
