You can really see the difference between the two, though the second one still has barely spun, over spun and really thin bits in it too. I never really got the whole “setting the twist” concept until I soaked these tiny skeins and hung them to dry. I hung them from a hook and weighted them down with one of out huge umbrellas. The difference was noticeable right away. I have a long way to go to reach Ms. Harlem Purls skills but I’ll get there someday.
