March Meet The Maker Day 8: Finishing Touches
Once it’s been prepared, dyed, rinsed, dried and twisted, the finishing touch that happens to a skein of yarn before it’s ready to sell is to have its label put on. To attach each label I use a nifty little gadget called a staple-less stapler. It cuts a small hole in the paper, folds it and tucks it in on itself, joining the two layers of paper securely. It doesn’t need tape or staples, so there’s no waste. It also takes less time than fiddling around with tape (anyone else get it stuck to itself more often than where you actually want it to be stuck?)
I’ve had the same “stapler” since December 2020 and it’s still going strong. It’s been used on probably several thousand labels at this point, so I think it’s safe to say it’s robust!
