To hold string in place on a ball of twine, put a wide rubber band on over the end of the string. The ones that come on produce work well. When you need some string, just give it a pull and it will unwind under the rubber band. Cut off what you need and then place the ball of twine back where you keep it. The rubber band will hold it in place.
