From Sweater to yarn!

Project Description

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? If you want to reclaim yarn from an old sweater, check out the chaotic crafter. There is a great tutorial here: http://chaoticcrafter.wordpress.com/2008/01/21/reclaiming-yarn-from-a-thrift-store-sweater/

What you will need

  • I took a cashmere sweater apart and reclaimed the yarn!

Love your yarn and thanks so much for the link! I am going to try it! I, too, am a thrift store junkie since I was about 15!
