Yarn is a type of thread that is spun from animal wool. Only a select group of animals have hair of a quality to be considered wool; these animals may be butchered or sheared to produce wool. Yarn can be woven into cloth at a loom. Yarn cloth can then be used to create a variety of textile products such as bags, clothing, rope or crafts.

A dwarf with the spinner labor enabled can process wool into yarn at a farmer's workshop with the "Spin Thread" job order. With a loom, any dwarf with the weaver labor enabled will automatically turn any yarn into cloth.
