How Acrylic Yarn is Made

Have you ever wondered how man-made fibers are made?  We've all seen wool and other natural fibers spun on a spinning wheel, but how do they make other fibers?

If you are a machine geek, like me, you'll enjoy this tour of a factory that makes Red Heart yarn. Click for the video

This is a very interesting video. But I wonder how that original flat of fiber gets made before it is shipped to Red Heart! Thanks for sharing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOTE: somewhere in my reading, I remember seeing a drawing where the liquid material is "sprayed" through a device that resembles a shower head. I'll keep my eyes open for the reference. ~sue
