I had a blast demolishing myths that damage the textile community with some of my favourite textile-tubers.  



The co-conspirators
Abby Franquemont
Manda Made It
Carrie Craftgeek
Mijn Wolden
holycrappitsjo
CrowingHen (that's me)
and our host JillianEve

This was so much fun, but it's always a risk to try something new.  So if you like this sort of thing and you want to see more round table kind of content, head on over to the video and leave a comment (and thumbs up) with your favourite myth or maybe other topics you would like to see us natter about.

The elusive R Ranson showed her face! It's always interesting putting faces with the people on here!

Crowing Hen is about to get a new follower!

I really like the quality of your videos. The shots are beautiful as soon as I get the time with out sleeping kids near by I am excited to get to listen. Textiles are the scariest part of DIY for me but fascinating. I did the darn a sock bb a while back and I use that method to mend everything now! I need to brave a few more textile bbs! Thanks for putting your knowledge and passion out there for us!

Thank you Raven, I often fall into the trap of trying to make my work perfect, I will try to embrace handmade irregularities and enjoy the process of making much more and value the imperfections.

That was neat. There was a short period near the beginning where the group conversation had this "gawd, people are so stupid" vibe, which I imagine is probably easy to slip into when busting myths, that I found a little off-putting, but it went away pretty quickly and the rest of it was a great conversation. My favorite quote was something like "Merino is the Romain lettuce of sheep breeds" -- that's both funny and insightful - about lettuce as much as wool. (Like everyone in that talk, I think Merino is a delight, but I prefer spinning BFL or Polwarth.)

Thank you Raven! I enjoyed this myth-busting video very much. As well as reading the comments and commenting too. And now I'll go on watching some of the others in that video I did not yet kow (I only knew you and Jillian Eve).
