Saturday School – How Yarn is Made

Hi, Stitchy Friends!

Today marks the start of a new series here at Stitching Lotus: Saturday School. Every week I’ll be sharing a cool video, article, or picture essay that will teach us all a little bit about needlework, knitting, yarn, or other fibre-y things.

For the inaugural Saturday School I wanted to share a fabulous video put together by Yarnspirations and the Crochet Crowd. It shows how Spinrite, the makers of wonderful yarns like Bernat and Lily, make some of their yarns.

This video shows how a couple of different types of yarns are made and explains a lot of the steps involved. It is facinating to watch the yarn move from raw fibre (it looks like pink cotton candy!) into a finished ball of yarn. Who knows, one of these balls could have ended up in your stash!

Let me know what you think! And please let me know if there are other topics you’d like to learn about.
