Sitting on my triple balance scale in the kitchen are the three latest skeins of 60/2 silk I have wound for dyeing. Each skein consists of 1200 yards. Together, They weigh 109 grams. Divided by three, that means each skein weighs 36.3 grams, which, for practical purposes I will round off to 36 grams.
Why not weigh each skein individually? I think I might get more accurate results this way. At any rate, it is just simpler.
