Where To Find Recycled Yarn

If you read my Art of Recycling blog you may have read about how people are recycling yarn from sweaters to use to create new items. If you're into reducing waste or even just saving money you may want to try this yourself. It's really easy to get the yarn back from a sweater, scarf, afghan, or whatever has been knitted or crocheted. You can pick up those items for under a dollar at garage sales or thrift stores. There are lots of easy to follow instructions for unraveling the yarn found on the net, so I'm not going to reproduce that here. If you find the process a bit time consuming or too boring for you there are many places you can purchase yarn others have reclaimed. Here's a quick list.

If you reclaim yarn and sell it on the internet please leave your link in the comments for this post. I will see it and add it to the list on the sidebar as well.

I know nothing about yarn or knitting but it was an interesting title and it caught my attention. I am eco conscious about everything so I was glad to find out about this. Keep up the good work.

I love the idea of recycling yarn but I can never seem to find all these wonderful cashmere sweaters for no money in neither charity shops or car-boot sales. It's all polyester / acrylic blends.
