Not what I expected Review by Lorraine

I thought that this video would be about how to spin and ply yarns for specific types of projects. It was not.

This video was about how to take commercial yarn, deconstruct it to figure out how to reproduce it by hand spinning. If this is your interest, then the video is perfect for you.
