Overtwist yarns are great fun to play with. Although they can be very challenging to warp with (but not impossible), using this yarn in the weft is a no-brainer. Sett your work quite loose, and after wet finishing the fabric will have a lovely crinkly texture. Be sure your warp yarns are fairly fine - the overtwist of this yarn only has so much strength. In the photos of this yarn, there is one that shows the twist - although we don't have the specs of how many twists it has per metre, it has a nice twisty bounce when exposed to steam or warm water.
