Klassificeret them again and types: open, closed (at the end is the limiter) and circular (connected to harness).

Now there are a huge number of options of yarn. From her choice depends on the result of all the work. Some contain 100% natural yarn (chinchilla, cotton, Angora), supplemented by other synthetic yarns (melange, Pingouin Familia, Alize Lanagold 800). It is important to take into account the thickness of the fibers, the structure, length on a reel, the availability of color effects. For the manufacture of warm clothes it is better to take mohair, Angora, Alpaca (natural wool goats and rabbits). Products they make warm, soft, light.

  • Mohair is one of the warmest types of yarn. It represents the wool of Angora goats. The best mohair is obtained by shearing the goats. Used in the form of a mixture with synthetic fibers, due to the fact that pure mohair can not form a filament and splits into fibers.
