Plot twist.
So, it turns out you don’t need clothespins to line dry laundry. I gleefully stumbled upon this ingenious technique during a meandering internet search. How did I never think of this? It’s so simple and efficient. The twisted line seems to hold garments even better than my spring clothespins. And I like the snapping sound it makes when I pluck the dry clothes from it’s grip. This method is especially good for my indoor setup, which I hang up and take down with each load I dry. Outside in the garden, the line I share with my landlady is a more permanent, untwisted setup. I imagine that in an open air situation, a twisted cotton line might be prone to grow mildew after a rain. At any rate, the pin-less approach will be my new indoor jam for the remainder of the cold season.
