I can't find the code to embed it directly -- YouTube isn't giving me anything codelike to share, just the link itself -- but this video is freaking amazing. It's a place in Mexico that makes thread for knitting/crocheting out of the leaves of a particular plant (and I was vastly amused at their using a big cactus to card the fibers before spinning). The video shows the whole process: harvest, prep, fiber extraction, prep, spinning, and knitting/crocheting. Audio is in Spanish with English subtitles.

ETA embed:

Fascinating, thanks for linking. Do you know what the final products are that we see them crocheting & knitting?

re embed: I tried with iOS app and mobile site: yep, YT no longer shows an embed option for its swoops-right-arrow share menu. Perhaps they think mobile users would not be writing in HTML. The "embed" option is still there on desktop.
