Advantages of Handspun Yarn
Handspun yarn introduces an attractive unevenness to knitting in contrast to the mechanical regularity of most commercial yarns, softening lines and adding a natural look to your work. Using natural dyes on your handspun wool adds a vibrancy that comes only from hand-crafted work. Learn more about hand-spinning and the history of spinning wheels here.

Wild Fibres visitors
Wild Fibres visitors include weavers, spinners & dyers, re-enactors and anyone who wants to learn more about natural fibres. If you are spinning or dyeing with natural dyes, you will want to use your dyes on natural fibers and textiles. For re-enactors looking to re-create authentic period costume for Anglo-Saxon, Viking, medieval or Elizabethan re-enactment, you will need to use natural fibres that are authentic to the period and to dye them with the period natural dyes. Learn about historical use of natural fibres and textiles here.
