Help! How to stop my chenille yarn from twisting?

Hello all! I am new here and I hope I can get some help with a problem. I started working with a 2 lb cone of chenille this morning. It is a lighter weight, seems to be somewhat between sport and fingering wieght and it is kind of flat - the chenille part sticks out of opposite sides of the strand rather than all around if that makes sense. I am having an awful time with it twisting as I work! I have never had this problem with a yarn before, so I’m at a loss of what to do to stop it. When I first started, I was just letting the yarn come up off the cone with it on the floor beside me, then tried turning the cone on the table next to me as I went so the yarn would always be coming off the side (I didn’t know if that would make a difference or not lol). Anyone have any good tips so this doesn’t drive me crazy? I don’t want to have to sit here and get the twist out by either flipping my work or the cone over and over now and then!
Thanks for any help!

Have you considered rolling some of it into a ball? I don’t know if that would work, but at least if it twisted you could just let it untwist easier. Some people have complained that their yarns twist no matter what they do, but if your’s doesn’t normally, I would blame the cone.

I’ve had problems with yarn twisting in the past too. Sometimes reeeeeally badly. I have found that it is much much worse when working in the round and have also found that it is a bit better if wound into a center pull ball. There is a video on this site that shows how to wind it.
