Fibre. Hand. Rotation. Intelligence. Technology. What once was a bunch of fibres becomes a line using intelligence of our mind and body. With the gentle pull of our hand, we allign few fibres and allow them to twist with the rotation of other hand, spindle or spinning machine.
By this specific movement, we coordinate fibers to form a yarn with desirable qualities. Thick, fine, smooth – qualities of yarn can change with different movement of our hands, but they also depend on given qualities of fibres. The breed, part of fleece, climate conditions are aspects that have direct effect on the fibre growth on the microscopic level.
The spun yarn is still unstable and has to be in tension to retain a certain shape. The trick for yarn, which is not twisting back is to overtwist it, catch it in the middle and let both ends to twist around each other. Thus, to form an entanglement of oposite equal forces which eliminate each other. This is also a process that gives us the ability to produce even more variables of the yarn.
