I'm just learning to spin (teaching myself, basically, although I've read my "Hands on Spinning" by Lee Raven so often it's dogeared!) and have a question about how you know you have too much twist. I'm working with alpaca, making a fairly fine strand of yarn using a worsted technique. My yarn seems to be pretty uniform (no fat lumps or skinny thinny spots). However, I notice that if I release the tension at all, the twist springs back, making little twisties.:o Am I putting too much twist in the yarn? According to Raven's book, thinner yarns need more twist than bulky yarns, so I've been trying to make sure that there's enough twist to hold it together. The yarn seems fine when I tug it to test it, but I'm wondering whether the skein will end up with twisties after the twist is set, and if so, what I can do to smooth them out. Thanks!!
