Don’t Starve Together – How to Get Spools

Spools are a form of in-game currency in Don’t Starve Together that players can use to obtain various items and skins for their characters. While these items and skins are purely cosmetic and do not affect gameplay, many players enjoy collecting Spools to customize their characters and create their dream costumes.

In this guide, we will explore the different ways to acquire Spools in Don’t Starve Together.

How to Get Spools in Don’t Starve Together

There are several methods to obtain your desired skins in Don’t Starve Together. Some options include purchasing skin bundles, receiving weekly drops, or manually weaving items yourself. However, purchasing bundles and weaving items are the only guaranteed ways to acquire specific skins, as the skins obtained from weekly drops are random.

Although buying bundles requires real money, you can weave your preferred skin for free as long as you have enough Spools.

If you want to unravel items to acquire Spools, follow these steps:

  1. From the main screen, navigate to “Item Collection” > “Curio Cabinet”.
  2. Select one of the seven available categories: Belongings, Beards, Emotes, Emoticons, Portrait Frames, Profile Icons, or Vignettes.
  3. Browse through the items in the selected category and choose the one you want.
  4. Click the “Unravel” button located at the bottom corner of the item’s description.

Note that you can only unravel items that have the Woven tag displayed below their name.

The number of Spools you receive from unraveling an item depends on its rarity. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Common: 5 Spools
  • Classy: 15 Spools
  • Spiffy: 50 Spools
  • Distinguished: 150 Spools
  • Elegant: 450 Spools

It is advisable not to unravel Elegant items, even if they are not your preferred skins, as they are rare. Weaving them back into your collection would cost three times the amount of Spools you received, which is 1350. Instead, focus on unraveling lower-rarity items. Although they offer fewer Spools, you will acquire them more frequently.

By simply playing the game, you can receive up to 15 free skins per week (7 from daily drops and 8 from weekly drops). While this may not seem like a significant amount, remember that every little bit counts.

Additionally, participating in special events or watching Twitch streamers who are Klei ambassadors can provide you with more items, increasing the number of Spools you can obtain if you choose to unravel them.
