Yarn Terminology

Submitted by Regev on Sun, 03/14/2021 - 18:00 CET

Have you ever wondered about all this information on the yarn ball-band that you don't understand? There is quite a lot of information on there, meant to let us as users know as much as possible about the product we are getting - How was it made? What does it contain? What kind of projects is it suitable for? How should we treat it? There is much to learn about the yarn from looking at the tag or reading the description on the website. But sometimes, even after reading it, we still don't fully understand what it means, because some of those terms are unfamiliar to us.

For most of us, crochet is a hobby. Something we do to relax, or as a past-time activity. To some of us it might be a form of income, or maybe even what we do for a living. But there are some people out there, who have taken crochet a step (or perhaps even a few steps) forward and transformed it into a form of art. And when I say "Art" I mean museums and galleries. I mean installations on display for the world to come, see and be in awe.

I personally am less interested in how it all started and more interested in its development over the years and how it was influenced by historical events and characters thought the course of time.

We all know Acrylic, Cotton and Merino. Some of us might even use Tencel, Cashmere or Baby Alpaca. But there are some fibers out there which are a bit less common, more unique and some even a bit strange...
Let's talk about those less known, harder to find fibers and get to know them better.
