Have you ever wondered how wool is processed to make yarn?
You’re not alone! The process of turning wool into yarn is pretty incredible and it’s even something you can do yourself! This month marks the beginning of yarn appreciation and what better way to appreciate yarn than to follow the process of cleaning, spinning and dying? I have just the perfect person to share this journey with you.
I’m joined by, Bren, creative entrepreneur behind, Snerb Yarn. If you have seen her photos on Instagram, no doubt one word comes to mind – talented! Bren taught me so much and I can’t wait for you to hear from her!
