I will not ask of what to do with it - it's obvious. But i'd really like to know what could possibly be a couse of it to prevent it in future. It couldn't be damaged by some accident or uncareful treatment. It appeared right in the middle of my practice from nowhere... My nails are short and there's no chance to touch the string with them even if i'd tried to do it intentionally.. This "things" is right on D natural on A string - no shifting available now
I hope that it won't happend to anybody of you, guys, but maybe somebody had a similar experience?
It could have been just a weak spot in the metal of the winding that came apart and has started to unwind. It happens sometimes with wound strings on any instrument, but not often.

Naska! That is D unnatural, a new note in music, an accidental. To have that note in one's A string, he/she should do lots of 'colle' bowing. Just joking. If you have a spare string, change it. Or give the violin a "A break".

Ok something else to stress about now, besides humidity lol. FM your fingers really can sweat while playing violin? It never happened to me is it a normal thing or uncommon?
