The choice of yarn can make or break a weaving project, making the weaving experience and the finished project either satisfying or disappointing. There are so many things to consider—fibers, yarn construction and weight, sett, colors, and more—and so many questions. Can this yarn be used for warp? For weft? What reed size should you use? What do numbers like 8/2 mean, and what the heck is 'worsted,' anyway? In this video, master weaver Tom Knisely answers all these questions and teaches you how to choose the perfect yarns for your projects
