Manos yarn

Question, can I wind Manos Yarn on a swifter and ball winder? It is a wool blend and when purchased it comes in hanging hanks.

I have like 12 to wind.


I don’t think it’s a problem. I think I’ve read though that you don’t want to wind too far in advance because the yarn can get stretched? So maybe do a few at a time as you need them. :shrug:

I wound my two balls of Manos yarn when I made this scarf. - Everything worked out fine for me. Definitely be careful about winding it too tight so you don’t stretch it.

Good luck!

Jess those colors are very pretty.

Jan thanks for the tip.

I am glad I can wind them, I will just do it slow and loose. Thanks so much.


Some yarns like to stick to themselves as you’re winding them. I just pull a bit on the strand coming off the swift, or sometimes twirl the swift by hand.
