    I really enjoyed your article on wool. I never really considered all that went into the creating of yarn with a wool content. I just accepted that shopping at an independent yarn vendor was a special treat! I truly enjoy your website. Your tutorials are fantastic. Both have encouraged me to expand my horizons and learn different stitches and styles of crochet, as well as the history behind them. Thanks for making crochet, something I truly enjoy, even more enjoyable! P.S. Your SAL and CAL are so much fun! Thanks to you and your team for all you do!

    I did not realize how many breeds of sheep and types of wool there are. I have tried marino, but i would like to try others. I have seen yarns that say highland wool, shetland, peruvian. Is it region or breed the wool is from?

    Dear Sir … Thank you again for this enlightenment on the difference in wool and also very instructive for those who do not know about the wool process .. to me I see a big difference in wool when knitting or crocheting a scarf or toque for the harsh winters we have here in Quebec. And also the durability of it and as for the price goes .. well .. I think that if you want to gift someone with something you’re done or created from your own hands I think it’s the perfect choice for it is durable. I’ve been in many sheep farms where they produce wool from Scotland to Ireland to Nova Scotia and PEI and it is indeed great work done by artisans to produce the most quality in their wool .. all have a different approach and techniques but in the end the product is like no other. Again thank you very much for this great article.♥

    This is a great article.
    You explain very well what I’m asked all the time.
    I’m a spinner and fiber artist.
    When I buy someone else’s hand spun merino or go to a yarn store I know that I’m going to pay more to get the quality that I want for my project.
    I’ll gladly pay 20 to 30 dollars for a skein to make something beautiful.
    Lace weight and fingering weight is pretty much impossible to get in the box stores.
