Wrap yarn around fingers till it looks 'fat enough'. Then carefully remove it from your fingers, wrap 2 strands of yarn around the middle, pull as tightly as you can without breaking yarn, tie tightly in a double knot. Now snip thru the loops, it's usually is a bit ragged at this point, so hold it over the garbage and snip till it is fluffy and even :-) To make it even more fluffy, separate the individual strands in the yarn.
