Tips for Handling of silk

Only during recent years have relatively heavy reeled silk yarns become available to handweavers. They are extremely slippery and require some special handling. A ball winder should not be used with reeled silk yarn. The silk yarn will slip off, making a tangled mess. Wind the silk yarn balls by hand, or better still, wind your warp and shuttle directly from the skein placed on a yarn holder (swift). It is best to clamp the swift sideways rather than upright. Investing in a couple of swifts and bypassing the ball stage saves time and tangle no matter what type of silk yarn you are working with.
