Pull Out strings

I really like it when the yarn has the pull out strings. Makes crocheting or knitting easier. I have been noticing a lot of the yarns that have no pull out ones for easier use. I get frustrated and have to pull a bunch out  and make a separate ball  all the time.

Does anyone who knits or crochets notice this.? Just wondered.

Hi Aileen -

OK I understand now about the pull out string - in the skein of yarn.  

I think they all should be that way!

I have a similar gripe - about the string on the top of some bags of pet food.  The good ones - you pull on that string and the bag opens.  On the bad ones, the string does nothing and you have to cut the bag with scissors.

I hate that so I just cut the bag.
