How to unwind a Skein of floss

In this quick beginners cross stitch how to video I show how to unwind a length of floss from the skein without getting it knotted up (a skein is the pre-tied form that floss comes in when you buy it). Some people like to keep their floss in skeins and unwind as required, while others prefer to rewind their floss onto a bobbin (bobbinating); or onto a plastic stitchbow – for example. In a later video I will show you how to do this as well.
