If you've ever found yourself confounded about how to translate the beauty of handpainted fiber into yarn, chain plying could be the perfect solution. It creates a 3-ply-like yarn spun from a single so that color separations and changes are maintained.

Once everyone is comfortable chaining along, we'll put our chain-plied yarn to the test and see if it holds up as well as a traditional 3-ply and if it doesn't, exactly why and how it fails. Chain plying can be tricky to figure out but once you do you'll get perfect stripes with no left over singles.
