Plaited Wool UPDATED with Plaited Floche

One of the re-enactors at Historic Williamsburg (she is doing tambour embroidery) plaits her crewel wool to keep it tidy until she needs it. Then she just pulls a strand from the braid.  Use the side arrows to see more, including her tool box and needlepoint.

UPDATE: Mary Corbet does something similar with a skein of DMC floche.
