A Word From the Author:

"Most yarns are spun clockwise or to the right. And in fact, in some old cultures it would be a taboo to spin counterclockwise. Only the shamans or the very important people could do that. There’s actually one book that talks about if you would spin a yarn counterclockwise and lay it on the ground, and someone would walk over it, they could become ill. Or if you were to make something for your loved one, you might spin a little bit of counterclockwise yarn and put it in that garment and then that person would love your forever." — Maggie Casey
