Chained or Constructed Yarns, from Knitting Daily TV Episode 904's Yarn Spotlight

Yarn Spotlight:
Eunny meets up with yarn expert Clara Parkes on this episode's Yarn Spotlight segment to talk about chained or constructed yarns. Featured here is Sifa Silver Cotton by Figgi Yarns, a chained cotton yarn that also includes silver elements. This yarn contains 5-10% silver, which is anti-bacterial and has therapeutic qualities. The silver filament is injected into the yarn, but surprisingly does not make this yarn "blingy" in the least. Also shown on this episode is Tahki Stacy Charles' Melody yarn (multi-colored purple and blue) and Trendsetter's chained yarns (multi-colored thick yarn and ivory yarn).
