YarnCraft Episode 90 :: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Yarn Development PLUS 10 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
On this episode of YarnCraft, Liz & Zontee tackle a topic that has come up several times in listener questions. We explore how Lion Brand develops yarns and Liz, as Director of Yarn Development, walks us through the process. From fiber content to what a yarn is used for, we consider many different factors when creating a new product line. Speaking of which, look out for new products from Lion Brand coming to you this fall!
Liz wants to thank Nancy C. from San Antonio for the scrubby made with tulle and cotton!
