How to Wind Yarn, Including a Centre-Pull Ball

July 28 2020 – Sarah Cleeton

Have you ever wondered how to wind a skein of yarn? It's not as complicated as you might think! In our latest video tutorial from inside the shop, Lisa demonstrates two different ways of how you can wind a skein of yarn in the comfort of your own home.

The first method involves an umbrella swift and a winder. But don't worry if you don't have those! Lisa also shows you how to create a centre-pull ball of yarn using only two chairs, your hands, and a bit of patience. Watch the video below to learn how to wind your skeins of yarn at home.


How simple is that?! Now you can wind any skein of yarn you have from the comfort of your own home. Just throw on some good music or that new show on Netflix that's been sitting in your queue for awhile, and tackle winding the yarn for the next project you have lined up.
