2 ply: pull out a length of your freshly spun singles 12 inches with your right hand, pinch with your left hand on the singles near the orifice and pull out another 12 inches, bring our right hand (the end of the yarn) up to the orifice, and allow the yarns to twist back on itself. when the yarn settles, THAT is what a balanced 2 ply is going to be.
3 ply: pull out a length of your freshly spun singles 12 inches with your right hand, pinch with your left hand on the singles near the orifice and pull out another 12 inches, bring your right hand (the end of the yarn) up to the orifice, pinch the singles coming out of the orifice with your right hand, and pull out another 12 inches, bring your left hand pack up to the orifice, let go of your right hand and let the yarns twist back onto itself until it settles, THAT is what a balance 3 ply is going to be.
not tight enough? add more twist to your singles.
too tight? don’t use as much twist on your singles.
have a bobbin of singles where the twist has settled in? do the same thing as you would with an active single, break it off once you let it twist back on itself, and knot at each end. throw it into a pot of water, and watch it wiggle to where it’s happy! :)
