The world of yarn has changed greatly in the modern era. Years ago, your choices were limited to basic wool, acrylic, and possibly cotton. In today's world, there are so many more choices with a selection of more than 15 different types of fibers that are normally used to make yarn. These fibers fall into two categories, natural and synthetic. Natural fibers are those that are obtained from a plant or an animal.
The most abundant and commonly used plant fiber is cotton, gathered from the cotton boll or seed pod when it is mature. In fact, cotton is the best-selling fiber in America, outselling all synthetic fibers combined. At Unwound, in addition to a wide selection of cotton and cotton blends, you can also find silk, flax, and linen.
The most common animal-source fiber is wool. At Unwound, in addition to basic wool, we offer a variety of pure and yarn blends that include merino, washable wool, alpaca, llama, cashmere, mohair, silk, yak and MORE!
In the past, acrylic and other synthetic fibers had a somewhat deserved bad reputation. But today's synthetics rival the quality and softness of natural fibers with an unrivaled ease of care and a stunning modern look.
