In this crochet piece, I focus on the relation and interaction of four fibres: wool, polyester, jute and linen. Yarns I chose because of their presence in my wardrobe and daily life and created from their discarded versions. They are varied in microscopic and macroscopic texture, roughness, strength and flexibility, but also in their treatment. Their interconnection impacts the act of crocheting and the resulting spaces. Pulling the threads with their different characteristics over hands and fingers, finding comfortable compromises between the tension in the yarn, the hand and the needle, lead to differences in the act and the piece.
