How to Ply Yarn

Fiber artist Dianne MacDonald walks you through the basics of yarn plying.

Plying yarn is a skill every fiber artist should know, whether working with the fiber from the beginning of the shearing process or using fiber from other people’s animals. By making a plied yarn, you create a material that is thicker, stronger and more balanced for your knitted or crocheted garments.

Watch the video above as fiber artist Dianne MacDonald from Kentucky guides you through this simple and soothing process.
