After it's a spun up, the yarn gets washed and then "thwacked". To thwack yarn, you take it out of the rinse water, gently squeeze the water out of it and thwack it, hit it really hard against the side of the bathtub. It's a very satisfying thing to do and it does wonders for your yarn. It helps the llama and alpaca bloom and felt a wee bit at the core. Do this a couple of times on each skein and then hang it to dry. Will try to get to all of this on the weekend.
Bye for now,
