What is yarn Buttoned?

by Oct 4, 2023Knitting

During the spinning process, exactly during the mixing or blending, “buttons” of various sizes can be added which will give a dot effect to the yarn.

Buttons or also called dots, are small balls of fibre, generally silk, cashmere or wool for fine, colored yarns which give this mini polka dot effect to the yarn and consequently to the finished garment.

The buttons can be of various sizes, smaller or larger and colourful, and can be mixed in various colours, based on the effect you want to give.

In the photos below you can see some examples of yarn and buttoned pullovers, and you can also see how burette silk buttons are made. These buttons are very small in size, but there can also be much larger ones and in many other colors.
