Lost in a Yarn Market / by Yousuf Zafar

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for that special offer
A guaranteed personality


While wandering the markets of Istanbul, I found myself in an area devoted solely to yarn. Shop after shop filled floor to ceiling with yarn. Apparently, the Istanbul Yarn Fair is the largest yarn fair in the world. I knew textile exports were a big deal in Turkey, but Turkish wool yarn is a big deal. 

This shop owner looked up just as I took the photo. His face is lost in the multicolored rolls.
