Rustic yarn has been the hottest thing to knit for the last couple of years. But what is it? What does Rustic really mean? And do you HAVE to have a basket? Let's talk all things rustic yarn and wool in this episode of my knitting podcast. Bonus: includes analysis of cultural history, from a Certified Fashion Historian!

This video covers:
-The technical properties of 'rustic yarn'
-Why it's special
-The kinds of techniques and knitting projects that it's great for
-Why is it often so expensive?
-How can you get it for cheap?
-Is it itchy?
-It is like being back in the 1970s?
-Why does everyone seem to like it so much?
