In this inaugural episode of Modern Wool, Lydia shares an intimate look at the genesis of her mill, where yarn comes from, and the value of wool in the modern world.
Now, I’m not saying we are all crafters, we’re not, but we’re all doing something, we’re all making something. Whatever the thing is that you are creating in your world — if you love it, you’ll love your tools as well, you’ll love your materials that help you create it. And if you love those things, eventually they will lead you back to the natural world. So maybe … spending more time doing things you love, is currency for making the world a better place.
