But clothing and fibers is not just an industry. It also can be a wonderful hobby as there are many different ways to work with fibers, cloth and other material. You can start sewing different things with your own design, for example. But, in fact, that is a pretty complex task for a beginner. It is much easier to start with yarn knitting, for example. Comparing to all the other sorts of working with threads and fabrics yarn knitting is simple, and almost anyone with no special skills can do it. You also do not need something special for yarn knitting but just some sort of yarn (you can use any sort of yarn and it does not matter whether it is cheap wool yarn or more expansive mohair yarn) and knitting needles will be sufficient for that.
Yarn in general is a thread that consists of several long fibers that are interconnected. And yarn can be made of different materials. There is wool yarn, angora yarn, cotton yarn and many other types of yarn. And to improve yarn qualities in many cases synthetic fibers are added. The most popular yarn used for knitting is worsted-weight yarn made of sheep wool. Natural fibers, like wool, are more elastic than most of the presently available manufactured fibers, so they are more suitable for knitting. And the fabrics made of the wool hold more air which can be really good in sweaters, for example. Vegetable fibers are rare in making of yarn because they are much less elastic than animal-hair and, of course, things made of such yarn look different.
There are no yarns made only of synthetic material but different mixtures of natural and manufactured fibers are almost usual in the yarn production. You can easily buy yarn suitable for knitting at any special store or order it through the internet. Yarn is usually sold by weight, so first of all, you need to find out how many yarn you will need. For example to make a regular sweater you will need about 500 grams of woolen yarn. There are many different yarn manufactures these days, so it can be hard to choose the trade mark of yarn for your hobby. If you are just a beginner at yarn knitting, then probably yarn of any producer will do. And later you will learn to differ quality of yarn and will be able to make just the right choice of yarn manufacturer. And as long as yarn is made of regular natural fibers it is really easy to dye color by yourself.
So for your hobby you can use hand dyed yarn and make your fabrics more colorful and attractive. And as for the patterns for your yarn knitting everything is also very simple. And it is not a problem, if you do not have artistic skills because there are many different ready made knitting patterns with detailed descriptions. Just look through the internet sites dedicated to yarn knitting and you will find something what you need.
