'skeen'? or 'skane'?
I just say yarn.
But I am a smart ass. ;)
Skeen for me.
i say skein as in skayn. i checked on merriam webster and thats the pronunciation :)
It’s the fiber arts version of GIF.
I believe the word is of German origin (an honest guess to say the truth). In the German language you pronounce the first vowel when two appear together. “E” is pronounced like “I” so hence sk-eye-n. (Or sk-ein, thinking like the German word for one: eins).
This said I still say skeen.
I always thought it was pronounced the German way anyway. I was inadvertently pronouncing it right! Woop :P
