TWIST AND TOUCH
A variation on the touch dubbing theme is the twist and touch. Basically the same technique, but with a twist.
Apply wax to the thread as above and touch the waxed thread with the dubbing (I’ve used dyed claret mole here) but this time as you touch the dubbing against the waxed thread, twist the thread clockwise with your other hand.
Continue doing this until you have the required amount of dubbing on the thread.
Then when you wrap the dubbed thread you will see a different effect from the normal touch dubbed thread.
As with the normal touch dubbing technique you can vary the amount of dubbing to influence the final outcome.
