What kind of material is yarn?

First, let’s get acquainted with the key material used in weaving bracelets at home. Yarn is basically a length of fibers utilized in sewing, braiding, weaving, knitting, etc. Yarn can be made from various synthetic or natural fibers; two main types of yarn are filament and spun.

Polyester and cotton are other widely used types of fiber made into yarn for weaving or knitting. People fond of working with tissues may also opt for animal fibers, like angora, cashmere, silk, and others. In our case, we recommend that you use synthetic threads, as they are somewhat easier to work with due to their sleeker surface.

Take the threads, fold each in half, and make one knot from three threads. You also want the materials to stay steady while you weave a bracelet; for this purpose, use a safety pin. The threads that you folded in half created a loop, in which you should bring the pin and attach it to a stable place. You can also substitute a safety pin with tape or just place a bracelet on your lap.
