The second 2 ply needs more twist. Can that be fixed?

Definitely. You can run the skein through your wheel again or you can use a drop spindle to add extra twist in the specific sections that require it. I've done this with skeins that are set and unset. However, if it is already set I'd recommend using a drop spindle or being extra cautious on your wheel so as to not over twist the yarn. Good luck.

Nothing like a bunch of desecrated animal corpses to celebrate nature! I bet they were all murdered by the same killer too.

I got about 170 yards on this one. Another 2 bobbins waiting to be plied & enough fiber for at least 1 more bobbin. I might just wait & do a 3ply next.

It was an absolutely beautiful day! Very little wind so I didn't have to fight with the fiber.

Is it possible to get more twist after a yarn is plyed?

One way to avoid this in future is to break off a length of the unplied yarn, fold it back upon itself, letting it twist together, then wet it thoroughly.  It will probably twist some more because when yarn has been sitting on the bobbin or spindle for a while, the twist sets, so that it's not live until exposed to moisture.  Allow this to dry, or at least blot it mostly dry in a towel, then use the plied twist of this sample as a guide when you ply the rest of the yarn.  You can also use this to get a better idea of how much twist the plied yarn still needs.

Yep. Ball it up, pop it in a box or bowl then run it through the wheel again. Just make sure you are spinning it the right way to add twist rather than remove twist. You will tell this quickly.

Just took this 2 ply off the bobbin. Looks to be about 170 yds. I'd like to get a simple triangular shawl done for Springs Folk Festival in October.
