A skein (from a big commercial company anyway) is simply long and oval because a ball would be difficult to display and manage if it held that much yarn and were to be placed in a display. They are both simply wound up yarn with a center end and an outside end.

I just took a look at the Bernat site and it is obvious that the Softee skein is no different from almost all other commercial skeins. As I said in my above post, look under the band. There will probably be two ends. If you have to break the band no big deal. Tape it together or better yet slip the skein into a yarn bra or plastic baggie or best or all, both. It will be easy to handle and will stay clean while you work on your project.
