I'm thinking a lot about spinning with ‘non-traditional fibers': plastic, newspaper, material. There are many cool options out there and so many people willing to share how to do it! Here are just a few of the tutorials, ideas and inspirations:
- Plarn (yarn from plastic bags)
- Recycling t-shirts for yarn
- Newspaper yarn
- Scrap knitting
- Oz is thinking about making yarn from a wedding dress…and now I am too (but not my own! Probably a thrifted hideous bridesmaid dress)
- Crocheting a rag carpet
Now that we're in Daylight Savings, my evenings are full of sunshine and I plan on taking more pictures of the process and will share if I make anything with these odd fibers.
Have you spun or knitted with anything not intended to be yarn?
