THICK-AND-THIN, Slubbed, Knot Yarns
Slubs are thicker, less twisted areas in a basically thin, well-twisted singles yarn. "It seems that when we are learning to spin we can only produce, to our dismay, a slub yarn. Slubby yarns are often equated with handspun. Spinning mills try to approximate handspun with thick-and-thin yarns. Careful inspection of these commercial yarns reveals that the slubs occur with amazing regularity, and that they are uniform in size." - Reference: Diane Varney, Spinning Designer Yarns »
For handspun yarns, slubs are naturally random and not so perfectly and equally sized.
