Roundup: Crewel to Be Kind

While most people consider crewel a style of needlework, the word crewel (or cruell) actually refers to the wool yarn, not the embroidery. While crewelwork was traditionally used with wool yarn, today it's used with a variety of yarns, from silk to cotton to even beads and feathers.
