Class: Recycling Yarn from Old Sweaters

Do you have old sweaters that are no longer in style but are holding gorgeous yarn hostage? All of our closets, attics, and basement, not to mention local thrift stores, are great sources for some fun yarn experimentation and exploration. In this class, we’ll do a hands-on tour of the full process, including tips for selecting an appropriate sweater, tricks for undoing commercial seams, deconstruction techniques for maximum yarn harvest and minimum frustration, proper washing and winding techniques for various materials, how to prep your yarn for knitting/crochet/weaving, and project ideas. Click for more details
