This issue is about texture. The ideas are manifold though.
On one hand, texture in yarn and fibre craft is about tactile form. How can you take a two-dimensional line like yarn and transform it into three dimensions? How do you create depth and surface interest? Is it possible to build texture into your fabric with other techniques besides traditional cable knitting?
Texture is about touch and how something feels. Is the yarn soft? Or squishy? Bouncy or plush? Sleek and slick or spongey? But more than how it feels, it’s also about how it makes you feel?
Three-dimensional texture in yarn and fibre captures air and becomes insulating, providing warmth and comfort, both physically and emotionally. In this issue, we are interested in exploring the theme of texture in a variety of ways. Knitting, crochet, weaving, and spinning is all tactile and these arts uniquely require you to touch and handle every inch of yarn. How it feels and how it makes you feel is essential to our craft.
