This special issue delves into the long history of our natural fibers, allowing us to look deep into the past while spinning into the future. Explore how Finnish weaver Hannnele Köngäs uses high-twist yarns and rare wool to create textured textiles. Be transported to a Moroccan village to see a tradition called twiza—the art of working wool together—and share a Diné shepherd’s history of the Navajo-Churro. Learn to blend Southdown with flax for a knitted shawl, work two half-hitch methods for a smoother spindle technique, and crochet an ever-useful rare-breed case for your fave device. This natural-fiber issue will have you searching for silky suri fleeces, Shaniko wool, and more!
