Great Basic Info on Yarn Structure Review by Shelby

This was informative and valuable if only for his many tips on handling yarns. He gave me the courage to jump in, measure wraps per inch, and warp a fiber I never thought would make it to my loom. I've already ordered what surely is the companions DVD on "Weaving with Novelty Yarns." Highly recommended to anyone who wants to weave with experience the highly diverse world of fibers available! to us.

Learned A LOT Review by Nicholas

I thought this was a really terrific video. I learned a lot not only about yarn, but also about how to relate yarn to weaving. Understanding yarn and how they differ (i.e., the difference between woolen and worsted) would be useful enough, but this video went beyond that and related everything to my weaving. I'll be much better able to produce the kind of woven items I envision as a result of having watched this video. Still, I feel like there is so much more to learn. When is the "Beyond the Basics" version coming out?
