Helpful tips when using Rainbow Roll

Special care must be taken when knitting with this pencil roving. It is not spun and is delicate and can break quite easily. This is not a problem however as you can simply overlap the two broken ends and knit them together for 3-4 stitches. There needs to be a clear path with no obstacles (ie: chair legs, dogs, cats, etc.) between the roll and your knitting needles. We’ve found the best way to feed your yarn is to carefully unravel several yards at a time between knitting every few rows. This avoids the usual habit to simply tug at the skein to feed more yarn. When using the roving doubled, it is quite strong and a bit easier to knit.
