Making recycled yarn new again

Once we get yarn from our sweater, the challenge is to entangle it

I used a steam technique to make the yarn new again

I put each skein in the vegetable basket of my giant pot
Put some water to steam inside the pot
Steam reach the yarn in the basket
Left the yarn there 3 times 20 minutes, letting the steam reaching all area of the yarn
Put yarn to dry around the umbrella to straight it out
Then put back in skein

Yarn is magically untangled and like new again
