How Yarn is Made: Blending

By Gina Rockenwagner on November 17, 2020

blending process

Next up in our video series, we learn more about the blending process. Blending, like the name suggests, is the step in the process when different fibers are mixed, or blended together. This process is an essential step in the yarn making process because the blend crafts the identity of the yarn. Take a typical sock yarn, for example, made from a combination of wool and nylon. The wool provides warmth and softness. The nylon makes the yarn stronger and more durable. Together, these fibers are much more than the sum of their parts!  At KNOMAD, we’ve crafted every single blend in our assortment with you, the dyer, in mind. From STRATUS to SANDSTONE, there is something for every artist in our collection. We hope you love our yarns. Make sure to share your creations using #knomadyarn so we can delight in them too!
