If a yarn is really slippery, I'll put it in some sort of sock -- usually a knee high hosiery (cheap) and use it from the middle of the skein or cake. As I use the yarn the sock keeps pressure on the outside and prevents the yarn from tangling.

I 'bottle' my yarns by cutting a door in the side of a clean 2 liter soda bottle. Some skeins fit in easily, for yarn from larger skeins and recovered yarn, I make balls to fit the bottles. When I am using a yarn, I run the working end through the top. They look pretty on the shelf, reduce tangling, keep the cats out, and have really been a blessing.
I am presently working on a Moorish Mosaic Afghan with seven colors. The bottles really help when I have to carry several colors at once
