Yumiko Alexander will present her talk “The Joy of Knitting with Plant Fibers”
Yumiko Alexander, founder of DanDoh Designs, will share how she became a knitwear designer and evolved from designing with heavy wool yarns to designing with plant fibers yarns. She will talk about the unique characteristics of plant fibers and how knitting with it is different from animal fibers. She will share some tips she has learned over the years and describe how to substitute plant fiber yarn in a pattern originally written for animal fiber yarns.
