- very disappointed
- I give this a 2 star only because the swatches she showed looked good other than that it was a pretty ordinary video. The section on "how these yarns are produced" is just here's a warping and here is bunch of skeins tied together. there was no demonstration on how the skeins are tied to stop them from tangling or using the warping board or even the length of colour that would make it best suited for socks verses jumpers. very disappointed :( (Posted on 8/11/2016)
