How to Make Yarn & An Overview of Fiber

Have you ever handled raw cashmere, yak, bison or bamboo? How about Tussah silk? Learn about different fibers and how they are blended to make beautiful knitting yarns. North Light Fibers will demonstrate how handcrafted minimally processed yarn is produced through a virtual tour of the North Light Fibers' Micro Yarn Mill located on Block Island, RI. Hands on demonstrations will allowyou to understand why steaming yarn and eliminating guard hairs are very important to making world class yarn. And then you will see why we are carrying this beautiful, locally made yarn in our store!
