We all love yarn. Let’s face it.
But how often do we actually think about where it came from? And I don’t mean Knitty City or The Yarn Co., I mean the actual process of making yarn. Some GYI! members have dyed their own yarn, even spun it themselves. Personally, everything I know about the making of yarn comes from this awesome book that introduced me to the world of fiber arts – I still have it if anyone wants to borrow. So in this series, I’m going to be doing a little research into the origins of yarn, from the sheep to the shop. Check back for the first post, all about the farming of the fiber.
