I took a cashmere sweater apart and reclaimed the yarn!
What was your inspiration?
I am a thrift store junkie, and I realized that there are cashmere sweaters to be had for practically nothing. I love reusing materials, so I knew there must be a good use for luxury sweaters! I have been reclaiming yarn for about a year now! I actually like UNknitting more than knitting!
What are you most proud of?
I save all the buttons, zippers and little bits for some use. The yarn is always washed after unknitting so the crimp is relaxed and it's ready for a new life.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
