  1. Breaking yarn comes from working with wool. When you work with pure wool, if you pull the yarn apart from the ball rather than cutting it the end stays woven in better, and is less apparent. Since the staple comes out in the full length, the resulting end lays flatter.

    It works the same way that spinning fiber does – you don’t cut the fiber when you are done with a single, you just break the fiber apart.
