Crochet Quote: Local Yarn

Today’s crochet quote is from the introduction to the book Knit Local: Celebrating America’s Homegrown Yarns Crochet Quote: Local Yarn by Tanis Gray. It’s a terrific book about various yarn companies and why there is value in buying local yarns. I’ll be reviewing it in the weeks to come but in the meantime, I offer this quote / suggestion:

“Next time you find yourself in your local yarn shop or at your farmer’s market, talk to someone about where the fiber in your hands is from. How was it made? Where was it milled? What kind of dye process was used? The more you understand about your fiver and where it came from, the more informed you will be and the more you’ll appreciate the process.”

Do you buy local yarn?
