Could it be an Australian term for skein or ball? :??
I looked it up and it seems "slub" is used in Australian yarn web sites.
Don't know for sure though :thinking:

Slub yarn has bumps, nubs and uneven texture in the yarn. It's also called "thick/thin yarn".

Here's (http://www.woolgathered.com/images/yarn79twist.jpg) an example.

Goddess? Uh, probably not. Geek is more like it.
