Quote:To go a little further in terms of analogy, and bear withn me because I am not a molecular biologist by any stretch of the imagination. Â Most yarns are twisted RH, imagine a DNA strand of denim, if you will. Â If you weave this left handed (which is actually pretty close to being the reverse of weaving the yarn right handed) you will break some of the sulfhydryl bonds, and somewhat loosen the RH yarn. Â If weave right handed, you twist the yarns in the same direction, resulting in tighter yarns, allowing more sulfhydryl bonds to form. Â Yes, yes, this analogy sucks for a number reasons, which we could discuss ad nauseum, but just thought I'd throw it out there for fun., and that you might enjoy it.
