Brushing Yarn

Okay, I have to admit, I have never heard of brushing yarn. I saw this post on Live Journal and have decided I now must try this. This would be so much easier and it looks like a better effect than using fun fur. Evidently, all you do is brush the yarn after it is knitted up with like a dog brush. Nifty ideas, some things you just have to wonder how someone came up with them.

  1. People have been doing this for at least a thousand years that I know of. Not acrylic, of course, but they have brushed woven fabrics for at least that long.
