Recorded Successful Yarn Substitution including Handspun Yarn with Kira Dulaney


Workshop Description: It can be nerve-wracking to switch the yarn on a project, but sometimes necessary. Learning how to pick (or spin) a successful substitute means you’ll never have to abandon a pattern written for a discontinued yarn, make a sweater too warm for your climate, choose from a line of colors you don’t like, or feel required to buy a yarn that's not in your budget. It will also help you match your handspun stash to patterns. We’ll talk about all of the considerations, with a special focus on how fiber content and yarn construction affect the finished project.


Experience Level: Beginner to Advanced


Students Should Have: No materials needed.
