Optional - How to Cut Yarn

If you’d like to go one step further and precut the yarn for your Region Leader that would be amazing! This is definitely not necessary and you should probably check with your Region Leader that you are cutting the right yarn to the correct lengths first 🙂 We need specific lengths for each wig.
