I've done the crochet hook method onto un-spun fiber but with some of the beads, even the teeniest tiniest crochet hook just will not fit through! So after much thought I decided to try using the wire that the beads I purchased already came with (I purchased my beads from Michael's for this yarn I made) and even if you purchase loose beads, you can easily just string them onto fishing wire.
I made a youtube video, with the help of my husband, that I will explain how simple it really is to do it!
What you will need:
- Beads: Make sure the beads you use will fit through your orifice AND flyer hooks. Trust me.
- Fishing wire
- Fiber of your choosing: For me I hand dyed some border leicester locks with Jacquard dye giving it a ocean inspired color and on one bobbin I spun straight from the lock but for the second bobbin I hand carded and then rolled into rolags using crochet hooks.

I hope it was simple enough to understand and I hope you enjoyed it!
