crochet help- Crafts & Homemade Items

I have a question for any crocheters out there. I recently purchased 2 balls of yarn at a thrift store ... it is in perfect condition. My dilemma is that it must be from a previous project and then ripped out; it is kinked and is not working well into a new project. Any ideas of how to straighten

    I have a question for any crocheters out there. I recently purchased 2 balls of yarn at a thrift store ... it is in perfect condition. My dilemma is that it must be from a previous project and then ripped out; it is kinked and is not working well into a new project. Any ideas of how to straighten yarn? I hate to see it go to waste, it's a beautiful color.

    Thanks to any help!
    Have a good day!

    If this worked, be sure to reroll your yarn ball more loosely. Keeping it in a tightly rolled ball will stretch the yarn.
