    I learned this one years ago from Paula of the The Prairie Piper. She did change it to a “hot water join” to make it a bit more sanitary but I still use spit when I am not in the mood to boil the kettle! It is brilliant for feltable yarns and I use it all the time. Tidy, no ends and super strong when done well.

    My mum taught me this one, well over 50 years ago! She used to unravel both ends, cut half of the strands from both the “old” and the “new” yarn, then overlap them. The yarn then retained the same thickness. It’s the way I still do it!

    I’ve used this FOR YEARS!!! You literally cannot tell where the join is , and it has never come apart in the 40 years I’ve been using this method !

    I use Koigu in most of my weaving and overlap a single ply from each end over the other strand, 3″, winding it around the two plys of the other strand in each direction. The yarn really does not want to actually felt, but the join is long enough to hold in weft or when knitting.
