I certainly know my wool now as I just finished Craftsy’s free online class named Know Your Wool. It was not only an educating but highly enjoyable experience.
Once I took my children to their pre-schools, I would make myself a cup of tea, equip myself with a notebook and a pen (yes, I’m a good student and I took notes) and enjoy watching Deborah Robson, a textile specialist, who instructed this video class. I paused the video when I needed to take notes and to find (and bookmark) the recommended resources on the Internet.
It’s incredible how many things about wool, its productions, and deferent breeds I have learned. Before I watched this class, the word “crimp” was not even in my vocabulary (I had to look up its meaning/translation in a dictionary).
I’ve learned how to choose and test the right kind of wool for a particular project. Another great thing that I’ve learned is how to find a good quality wool yarns made in the USA (which is important to me because I want to support wool breeders of my country first) as well as around the globe.
I want to thank Craftsy and Deborah Robson for this wonderful class, and I would highly recommend it to other crocheters and especially knitters.
