Follow along as I take you through the process of how I created this dreamy little yarn from scratch, from all locally raised fibers. There are many ways to process fiber and spin yarn, this is just my preferred way of doing things. I'll be using a drum carder, but you can also use hand-cards as a cheaper alternative or even just spin from the picked locks for a more textural yarn. Or, if you don't spin but are a yarn enthusiast, I hope you find this little behind the scenes look at how yarn is made to be enjoyable.
