For many, knitting may still conjure an image of a grandmother in a rocking chair, her cats sleeping and her doilies taking shape. In recent years, however, the quiet industry of tiny neighborhood yarn shops scattered across the U.S. has become an unlikely cultural battleground. It's been divided by charges of racism and cultural appropriation that have erupted in a series of social media firestorms, prompting some owners to close, sell, or rebrand their businesses. It may seem surprising that such a quiet pursuit could produce so much conflict, but it's really not all that different from the fissures afflicting the country as a whole. In this bonus episode of the 21 Hats Podcast, we meet three women who were not content to stick to their knitting: Adella Colvin, whose business, LolaBean Yarn Co., is a prominent independent dyer based in Grovetown, Ga.; Gaye (a.k.a. GG) Glasspie, a leading yarn industry influencer whose signature color is orange and who is based in Clifton, New Jersey; and Felicia Eve, who owns String Thing Studio in Brooklyn, N.Y., which is one of the few Black-owned yarn shops in the country.

In Episode 55 we talked about how to the weight of mystery yarn; this week we're talking about ways to identify its fiber content. Grab your notebooks, goggles, and adventurously scientific spirit. Here we go! Smell Test * Animal fibers: it will smell like a wet sheep! Maybe a barn/hay smell too * Silk: may have an earthy or fishy smell * Synthetic fibers: generally no smell, maybe oily/artificial smell * Plant fibers: generally no smell Felting Test * Animal fibers (including silk): will felt if non-superwash * Synthetic & plant fibers: will not felt Bleach Test * Animal fibers: will fizz and dissolve in 12-24 hours * Silk: will dissolve in approximately two days * Synthetic & plant fibers: won't dissolve, may lose color Acetone Test * Synthetic fibers: will dissolve * Animal fibers, silk, and plant fibers: will not react much at all Burn Test * Animal fibers: will burn slowly and curl away from orange flame, will smell like burning hair or feathers * Silk: will burn slow and curl away, may char, may smell like burning hair or charred meat * Plant fibers: burn fast & give off smoke, leave light colored ash * cotton has a yellow flame * hemp & jute has a very bright flame * linen, hemp, and jute ash will still be in the shape of the yarn * Synthetic fibers: will burn (or really, melt!) quickly and emit a strong, black smoke What's on our needles this week: Felix Cardigan (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/felix-cardigan) designed by Amy Christoffers Gresham Wrap (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/gresham-wrap) designed by Michael Vloedman Send us your letters! dearscratch@scratchsupplyco.com

If you are going to change your life, you are going to encounter obstacles. And some of those obstacles might even be dangerous. Welcome to A Fiber Life.  In episode two,  Lisa and Greg get real about the darker parts of their journey. The parts that should have made them quit. From shoveling loads of hard-packed poop, the death of their mentor, difficulties with the guanacos themselves that left them physically and mentally scarred, Lisa and Greg leaned into their decision to be farmers. You see, the way you react to these scary things could mean the difference between actually making the life you want or going back to where you came from and never making a change at all. If you don't let the fear take over and instead If you lean in– If you take a breath and keep going, you might be surprised at how good things can become. Click here to read the full episode and transcript. Learn more about Lisa, her Guanacos, and more at afiberlife.com

We have learned though that she does not enjoy bamboo needles so I need to work on getting her a short circular, metal needle replacement for the cowl she's working on. Riley's current project is a cowl from Lion Brand in a fun color changing yarn. It turned out a bit too big and so instead, she wants to make it into a top for Millie. She's learned to make i-cord to use for straps and we'll sew those on when she's done.

Keeping low stress?” Build habits that get you headed where you want to go. Figure out not just what you're aiming for but concrete steps of when, where, how you'll do things to move in that direction. Be grateful. Look for the good things happening around you and you'll find those. Remember that life isn't all good. It's a mix. We're supposed to be sad, angry, overwhelmed. Personally I don't find it useful to try to find a way out of that. Experience it. Lean in, and then…when it feels like it could pass, move on.

There are these moments in life, let's call them ‘YES moments'. They happen when we stumble across a really good thing and say ‘YES'. Welcome to A Fiber Life. In episode one, owners of Aliento Luxury Fiber Farm, Lisa and Greg, share the story about how they quit their busy, successful and stressful jobs, moved to an island, and started their lives over as fiber farmers. They share how they began raising llama-like creatures, called guanacos, and learned to harvest their fiber to create garments. How did this happen? Why did this happen? Did they know what they were doing? Lisa answers all these questions while also challenging listeners to tune into that nagging part of their brain that tells you to say “YES” to crazy ideas... and how this may actually be the sanest thing you can do. Click here to read the full episode and transcript. Learn more about Lisa, her Guanacos and more at afiberlife.com
