For years I designed knitting yarns for Neveda This yarn was made on a fancy twisting machine. By running the yarn feeders at different speeds, a twisting effect is created. The variations are infinite.
What you see here, is a printed cotton slub yarn, a yarn that is unevenly spun so that there are thicker and thinner pieces in the yarn.
This yarn is twined with a green frisé yarn and a binding thread.
Behind the twisting machine I made small knitting samples to determine the effect of the yarn.
The machine I used most to develop knitting yarns is the fancy twisting machine. By feeding the different threads at different speeds and subsequently fixate them, variations like slub-, bouclé and frizzy yarns are created.
