I have always wanted to spend time in a yurt. The dwelling seems so simple on the surface, but this video shows the process of building the frame, creating the felt walls, and weaving the binding straps. The video is a bit over 28 minutes, and halfway through are the fiber elements, but it is well worth the watch! The innovation of these dwellings of nomadic cultures is truly amazing! Here’s an article on how you can build a yurt! Enjoy!
