Art Yarn Building blocks

Now that you’re enjoying spinning more “ normal yarns” it could be time to branch out to the wonderful world of art yarns. What are art yarns you ask? Well it probably depends on who you ask, I personally qualify any yarn that is perhaps larger, chunkier or inculdes fun add ins like beads, locks sequins etc. This bonus section is meant to build on itself similar to the rest of this course. I really hope you have fun playing with these different types of yarn. Some times creating for the sake of creativity is fun enough but I also think yarns of this kind can be thoughtfully incorporated into everything from knitting to weaving. I’d love to see what you you make so please tag us on instagram #craftyhousewifeyarns or share pictures in our facebook gr
